Freire Barnes

Art & Design Editor

Born in the heart of London, Freire's been surrounded by art since childhood. From being mesmerised by Fra Angelico's frescos in Florence, experiencing Dali­'s Mae West room in Caduceus to Ivan Meštrović's public monuments in Belgrade, Freire's extensive travels instilled a love of the arts. After studying painting she worked for David Bowie's, Bowieart and began to write for the BBC, Bon and Dazed & Confused. She curated the Converse x Dazed Emerging Artists Award and was one of the first cohort to graduate from the Royal College of Art's Critical Writing in Art & Design MA. After a Land Art research trip across America, she took up her Deputy Visual Arts Editor position at Time Out. When not at an art opening, she's excited to bring her global art discoveries to the Culture Trip's readers.
