About the Artist
Prolific, accomplished, and a person of many things - The works by Joe Papagoda are collected across the USA, and abroad.

Although a majority of Joe's artwork is formed in a fluid & organic manner with color dominated arrangements of erupting color & hidden details - he also creates dramatic photographs, occasional clay sculpture pieces, and semi-abstract figure paintings - subverting the common concept that artist's are only ever recognized for a single approach. Additionally, his artworks are often paired with poetic titles to create a sense of mystery, and narration that allows the viewer’s mind to wander further into the conceptual meaning of the artwork.

Joe has also been commissioned by the Tilden Hotel in late 2016 to create an original artwork to be transformed into a 65 x 35 foot printed mural that will be visible throughout the whole hotel. In 2016 he also began to offer exclusive limited edition fine art prints of his abstracts and select originals with ArtStar.com. in 2017 Joe was also invited to lecture on the topics of art, photography, social media marketing, and to review AP student portfolios with Nepris inc. Joe’s approach to art is not in conformity to the common milk-and-water approaches. He has elected to become his own authority and keep with his divergent ability and advances with his own hallmarks and tends to dismiss even the formal approach to art creation and rather works authentically in his own manner while combining mediums with the intent of inspiring others.
