While his deep attraction to the art world may have been surprising and while it also came late, for Baryn Futa, this appreciation for art has thus far made him happy and given him purpose. It’s hard for Baryn to describe, but something profound happened then, and it transformed his life in a profound way.
Now, Baryn Futa is seen as one of the best art patrons in the country.
