ABOUT THE ART
"Hurricane Ida took a devastating toll on NJ. Lives were lost, homes and businesses destroyed, families displaced, their entire belongings taken by floods. While my family and I were fortunately spared, it's heart-wrenching knowing that so many others were not. Recovery efforts here will be slow and ongoing. And it's a scary thing: NJ had 11 tornadoes and five hurricanes this summer. That's unheard of. Who knows what's next... climate change is here. Thank you for helping me help my community and state."
– Joe Iurato
Joe Iurato is a NJ based multidisciplinary artist whose works are built on a foundation of stencils and aerosol. Somewhere in between simplistic and photorealistic, his multi-layer stencils offer a distinctly clean and illustrative aesthetic. While Joe's art has adorned walls along the east coast for almost 20 years, he’s also become noted for the unique placement and photography of miniature painted wood cutouts in public spaces. Utilizing the outdoor environment to create site-specific installations, and often manipulating our perception of scale and dimensionality, he creates windows into a narrative formed by personal experiences.
