Hyper-pointillism: artwork made using toothpicks by JoKa

Contributions Reader Find

By Lin Shi in New Art on Saturday 13 October 2012

Using homely toothpicks as his sole form of paint application, JoKa’s laborious process of ‘hyper-pointillism’ results in work that is delicate and complex. Known for bright and vivid pieces with skewed imagery and sense of humor, JoKa takes a slightly darker turn for upcoming exhibit, The Noise in the Basement. Taking cues from the show’s title, his new body of work is a collection of the things hidden and buried. JoKa distorts familiar images into the surreal to create work that is ethereal and hauntingly beautiful. The Noise in the Basement opened on October 6 at WWA Gallery and will be on view through November 3.
