Joseph's story

I am Joseph Angel (Jazart Rex to the art community). I would love an opportunity for everyone to experience my artwork on multiple mixed mediums. I was born and raised in New York City, where numerous eclectic artists encircled my life from the young age of 9 years old, influencing me toward discovering the fascinating world of art. It all started one day when I created a single drawing for a class project, then it grew to a few sketches for friends, and finally a small painting I made which was hung at the entrance of my school building during my last year of middle school. My art teachers guided me toward rolling into the High School of Art and Design where I studied a full range of art disciplines for four years. There I got the opportunity to be a student of Dr. Irwin Gross, a prominent teacher in American Art. Under his tutelage, I gained the passion for art, which continues to burn in my heart today. After graduating, I went on to the New York School of Interior Design for two years. Soon after, I followed my interests in media education at The Center for Media Arts in New York City. There I learned all aspects of film & television production. I started and have carried my art/media production company for thirty years now, connecting with extraordinary people from around the world. Today, I am an eclectic artist with several art disciplines. My accomplishments include two feature films, one of which won an international award. My art also entails cinematography, photography, graphic arts, visual art, branding, marketing, merchandising, digital art, set design, multimedia, art direction, painting, illustration, fashion, while specializing in web art & design. Realistically, I believe that there are hundreds of art pieces that have evolved out from my heart which include many influential public personalities, clients, projects, organizations, posters, trailers, films, websites, entertainers, musicians, as well as oil paintings on celebrities like Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Lady Gaga, my students, friends and family and a loved one whom I've shared a moment along the path of my life. There are so many art concepts I have done that I've lost track of the number. Who knows, you might even see a painting of yourself in my art collection in the future. I've been creating and building my private collection to release to the world now through Jazart Graphic Tees t-shirt clothing company.
