Joe uses layers of hand cut paper and spray paint to create texture and form – a modern adaptation of an old-fashioned printing process. His art is nothing more than the exploration and documentation of personal experiences. These are his stories and how he chooses to tell them. The site-specific placements of the pieces often utilize the urban environment to complete their narratives.
– Joe´s got an amazing way of integrating his art with it´s surroundings. Though it´s made with spray paint the pieces are thoroughly detailed and the shading is absolutely perfect. I think that Joe´s pieces will be loved by many and something that the visitors going to spend time to search for. I´m really looking forward to see some epic spots in Borås decorated with Joe´s work, says curator Shai Dahan.
– The small “sculptures” of Iurato really appeals to me. There´s a significant touch of realism, like if they suddenly could come to life and start to interact with the wall, a stair or a fence. Like the pieces of Cordal last year, I think Joe´s figurines will the favorite objects to many, says project manager Stina Hallhagen.
In addition to his public and gallery works, he also work commercially. Past clients include: Adidas, ESPN, Nike, the NBA, NBC’s Sunday Night Football, Sprite, The New York Racing Association, Mike Tyson’s Iron Mike Productions, and Space Ibiza/NYC. Joe lives in New Jersey.
