JOE COLEMAN


Joe Coleman (born 1955) is an american self-taught artist that works and lives in New York. His body of work, which consist mostly of comic-inspired very accurate paintings on panel, depicts scenes of violence and horror, sometimes related to tragic news items. An admirer of Northern artists such as Bosch, Brueghel and Grunewald, Coleman employs the same attention to detail and delicate sense of scale. He has had solo exhibitions, notably a the palais de Tokyo in paris and in the KW Institute in Berlin.
