There is nothing like a JOE MORRIS ART painting anywhere. Itís nich the artist is calling poster paintings. They are not prints. They are works of art that combined painting, lithography, photography and other mediums that in the end display a surface that is rich and engaging. From the rough acrylic textures, stains and hand set letterings it feels like an art piece thatís been stuck in time. From jazz shows, to sports, and rock n roll and everything in between the poster paintings are as big of an impact as the subjects themselves. Done mostly on stretched canvas and finished with a railroad and sometime antiqued frame A Joe Morris Art poster painting lets the viewer get into the piece and connect with it. Some works are all paint and some push the mix media into new levels.
ďIíve done commissions for fortune 500 companies like Kelloggís, Allstate, Leo Burnett as well as for individual collectors around the country and no matter who it is they all say my work makes an immediate impact to their environment. All while drawing them into the piece by finding things about the work you canít get from just standard pop art.Ē Thereís poems scribed into them, essays, lyrics and other hidden gems that make each piece personal for each collector.
Joe Morris is known to creats a poster painting and then do something over it that is completely different to give it a unique layered look. Like a sign painter in the 20ís would repaint over old signs on buildings.
