Exhibitions on Display: May 12 through June 30, 2018
Reception: Saturday May 12 - 6-11 pm
"Originally from Denver, Colorado, Joel has a deliberately folksy, distinctive
and exuberant street style. His work can be seen throughout the metroplex, most
notably in his beloved murals on the Southside. Joel is an artist that crosses
back and forth seamlessly from his work as a street artist to an artist
existing within the traditional gallery framework. He likens his style to
"contemporary folk," and has a predilection to work in large-scale media.
His paintings evoke a freedom, rawness, and sincerity that can be seen
through his use of line and the minimizing of realistic components in the work."
Unconventional in style, Joel's highly-personal paintings serve as a peephole
into his past, offering a reflection on his upbringing and life-events that
have forged his world view. Complicated and multi-layered, A Beatbox Caviar
will immerse its audience an autobiographical storytelling and leverage both
his personal misfortunes and celebrations. The intriguing showcase will
highlight Joel's interpretation of past and future generations of his family,
including his relationship with his father and son.
A Beat Box Caviar is on Display through June 30, 2018
