Artist Statement:


Joe was born in 1995 on Long Island where he spent the first 20 years of his life in suburban paradise. His first inspiration came from the drives into Manhattan where he would gaze upon the tags and pieces across Queens and Brooklyn wondering “How the hell did they do that?” but didn’t think much of it at the time. This quiet kid kept to himself and never dove into the art pool again until high school where he took an intro ceramics class. Combining both mediums in the realm of higher education, Joe aims to spark discussion with the individuals within the street art and graffiti realm.
