The KCAC Instagram is BACK to chase all your winter blues away with KCAC Member and local artist Joseph Jurkiewicz (@josephjurkiewicz)!

We first got a look at Joseph’s artwork in 2016 while he was interning at KCAC. His hard-work and dedication to his artwork and practice struck us immediately. Upon graduating from KCAI in 2016, he jumped straight into producing a wide range of art, networking with area artists and gaining several group and solo exhibitions along the way. His continued growth in his work and career is incredible and we thought it was time to take a look into his world through the KCAC Instagram lens, so without further ado, away we go!

To get things started, here are a few words from Joseph about his current work and artistic inspiration…

“I am a visual artist involving complex narratives.  My paintings explore themes of solemn, desire, enigmatic and exaltation. Pulling influences from street art and fashion illustration to create perplexing surreal imagery. Using no reference’s to refer too, my imagery comes straight from the depths of my mind. My impulsive nature can be found in the pages of my sketchbooks, where I constantly explore new ideas, mark making and surrounding influences.”

We just can’t wait to see what Joseph has in the works for us, so here are a few images of his artwork and past Instagram photos to get things kicked off…
