Joel Rea was born in England in 1983. In 2003 he graduated from the Queensland College of Art in Australia with a Bachelor of Fine Art. He has exhibited his paintings throughout Australia for the last 13 years featuring also in notable overseas exhibitions in the United States, Europe and Asia.

Reas imaginative realities are meticulously developed for hours, so that in the end they become very detailed and smooth scenes, which explore the mutual influences between nature and humans. Drawing inspiration from photoshoots, designs and everyday situations, he creates powerful images that focus on magnificent creatures or people in surreal apocalyptic situations. In 2013, American magazine Art Business News selected Joel Rea as one of 30 artists under the age of 30 who are revolutionizing the world of fine arts.
