Joe Coleman

Joe Coleman’s paintings are a feverish cross between Ivan Albright-inspired grotesqueness and R. Crumb-like pop-social critique. Calling himself an ‘apocalyptic visionary painter’, the 52-year-old artist references Spanish-Mexican religious iconography and his intricate and obsessively detailed images often feature well-known criminals and outsiders, whom Coleman seems to consider himself to be.
