Illustrator, sculptor, and mixed media artist Joseph Franz creates stunning and unexpected pieces centered on personal nostalgia and animals. His work is ever-changing, but the wildlife and reminiscent narrative seem to be ever-present.

Franz’s illustrations have evolved from animals interacting with obsolete scientific and exploration items, to more intimate portraits of animals wearing Luchador masks. What we love best is how Franz allows his animal subjects to be viewed outside how they would in the real world. 3Three of his original mixed-media pieces are currently being featured in the Lost At E Minor store.
