About

 

Joseph Meloy (b.1982) is a visual artist born and raised in New York City. Working in a style he coined “Vandal Expressionism”, his particular brand of post-graffiti abstraction also draws heavily from AbEx, art brut, cave painting and hieroglyphics. Melding the abstract and the figurative, his work delves into the impulses of the subconscious and seeks to transcribe them spontaneously onto canvas, paper and wall in an otherworldly yet distinctly urban visual language.  Bouncing, fluttering, twisting and interlocking, the pieces pile up and fall into place as the marks flicker in and out of representation, coalescing into abstracted impressions of the natural and manmade universe.
