Joe Greenaway, born in 1987, is a St Ives based artist.
His work is a collision between ‘fine’ art and ‘street’ techniques, blending the spontaneous use of a spray can with the meticulous process of painted portraiture.
Although a lot of Joe’s work involves the use of a spray can, he considers his work as ‘fine’ art rather than ‘graffiti’ .
Central to his mixed media canvases is the human figure, which is not always immediately recognisable.
There is often a motive to Joe’s paintings to purge deep emotions in his own personal life.
