Barry Olusegun-Noble Despenza is an interdisciplinary artist whose work builds with and combines archival footage, AI generated imagery, and electronic music composition.

Recent international exhibitions include the Audain Gallery in Vancouver, the CICA Museum in South Korea, and at the Fringe Arts Bath Festival in England. Despenza’s work with AI imagery has been featured in publications such as Adweek and Hyperallergic. Originally from Chicago, Despenza received his BFA in film from San Francisco Art Institute, and is in the process of obtaining a Master’s in Sound Studies & Sonic Arts from Universitat der Kunst Berlin.
