New Jersey based street artist Joe Iurato creates tiny wooden figures street art that he strategically placed in the NYC streets.
Joe says, “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. It is the questions I have, the conclusions drawn, and the love, disgust, joy, and sadness I feel. I paint what I know or what I wish to understand. 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.”
