Joe Iurato is a NJ based multidisciplinary artist whose works are built on a foundation of stencils and aerosol. Somewhere in between simplistic and photorealistic, his multi-layer stencils offer a distinctly clean and illustrative aesthetic. While Joe's paintings have adorned outdoor walls for nearly 20 years, he’s also become noted for the unique placement and photography of miniature painted wood cutouts set in public spaces. Utilizing the outdoor environment to create site-specific installations, and often manipulating our perception of scale and dimensionality, he creates windows into a narrative formed by personal experiences.
He’s also established himself as a studio and commercial artist, with a list of clients that include: The NFL, Kenneth Cole, GQ, Red Bull, Adidas, Mike Tyson’s Iron Mike Productions, The New York Racing Association, Nike’s House of Hoops, ESPN, the NBA, NBC’s Sunday Night Football, Sprite, USA Network, Nusret Steakhouses, Nickelodeon, and Paramount Pictures.
