Barela’s passion for nature is the driving force behind his art …Chris’s talents are not limited to bronze sculptures, he excels at photography and filmmaking and recently was awarded first place in the Hawaii Ocean Film Festival for his short film on octopus. It is without question that Barela has become one of the world's best sculptors/patina artist, which grants him the honor of being one of the most influential artist of today.
