Oil on board
Joey Monsoon was born in 1971 in Inez, KY. He has lived his entire life in Central Ohio. Joey is a husband and a father.
Joey’s paintings are an effort toward constructing images that reveal and revel in our imperfections. While built on narrow structures of flesh and bone, his portraits depict the marks that life has left upon our bodies and our thoughts. These scratches and dents on our person are the tells of our humanness. In this time of filtered selfies, edited online personalities, and artificial intelligence, it will be our imperfections that separate us from the cold flawless technology of life.
Joey’s piece “Her Monumental Condition” will be featured in Art for Life on September 15. See more of his work at joeymonsoon.com.
