Biography / Joe Iurato

Merging simplistic and photorealistic approaches, multidisciplinary artist Joe Iurato’s work is based on stencils and aerosol, offering a distinctly clean and illustrative aesthetic. He has more recently become noted for the unique placement and photography of miniature painted wood cut outs. Joe’s works are featured as a part of the opening of URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

Joe Iurato’s multi-layer stencils highlight the potential for interaction and storytelling within public spaces and transform common cityscapes into carefully crafted scenes. While he is spreading his murals along the east coast of the US for years now, Iurato intends to, in his own words, ‘Create windows into a narrative formed by personal experiences’ with his site-specific installations. Photographs that he takes before leaving the scene, offer specific and intentional viewpoints of the artwork in relation to its surroundings, manipulating our perception of scale and dimensionality. Joe Iurato lives in New Jersey and in addition to his own art, is a successful commercial artist.
