Joe Giampalma

Joe Giampalma’s work concentrates on the idea of capturing a persons’ mood and personality at a glance. He works quickly with expressive brush and knife marks to try and attain a sense of movement within his paintings. This process sometimes distorts and twists the figure out of recognition completely and although he feels likeness to the subject is important, he believes that it is vital that he leaves his response to the subject through expressive and vivid marks.
