A little about the artist:
Joe Bloch has over 25 years experience in art and illustration. He was trained at RIT with a BFA in illustration and painting. Joe spent 10 years doing anatomical illustrations for medical books, and now focuses his talents on illustration and fine art. His highly textured acrylic paintings are a fusion of impressionism and industrial surrealism merged with street art on a canvas. Joe draws on his technical illustration background, fine art, art direction, graphic design and gritty Brooklyn history as an inspiration. His use of a vibrant contrasty primary palette with metallics creates a sense of drama unique to the art world. His paintings are described as “heavy metal on a canvas” and “raw Brooklyn industrial”.
