The Adventures of Little Wooden Cutouts
A different type of street art by Joe Iurato.
"I use layers of hand cut paper and spray paint to create texture and form - a modern adaptation of an old-fashioned printing process. My art is nothing more than the exploration and documentation of personal experiences. The pieces form an abstract of my life. They are the questions I have, the conclusions drawn, the love, disgust, joy and sadness contained."
"Essentially, I paint what I know, or what it is I want to know, playfully or painfully. However big or small, the works are often created in public spaces and left to interact with the environment and community. Like life itself, the nature of public art is one of transience. Each piece mirrors the unpredictability of existence and hopes to establish an intimate connection with the viewer in the here-and-now."
"In addition to my public works, my art can be found internationally in galleries and commercially. Past commercial clients include: Nike, the NBA, NBC's Sunday Night Football, Sprite, and Mike Tyson's Iron Mike Productions. I live in New Jersey. Not the one you see on TV."
