artist biography

Jim Joe (b. 1976) is a mysterious and curious graffiti writer, who has been spreading his name across the streets of downtown New York for the past six years. His scribbled handwriting dots the urban jungle of the Lower East Side and the East Village, making him a compelling, memorable presence on the city streets. Jim Joe's select gallery shows in Paris, Toronto and New York have shown a different level of quality in his work. The context of his drawings and arrangements allow them to speak more freely. Exaggerated portraits, found material sculptures, and other readymades comprise Jim Joe's portfolio, and the artist draws inspiration from Marcel Duchamp and the Dada movement.
