Since the age of four Joel has drawn heads. It has been a common theme throughout his artistic life and has now become his signature.

The work has always been related to time (through the layers of colours) and space (positive and negative space). Joel’s works have recently concentrated more on positive and negative space. The white spaces in his pictures are negative space. The colour or black and white heads are positive.

Through layering this positive space Joel creates a depth of field and a vibration by choosing colours that resonate with each other. Joel has recently begun looking at positive and negative space through sculpture and sound.

In the early 2000’s Joel worked as a painter but was frustrated by the slow nature and drying time of painting. Later he experimented with Wacom tablets but found them unnatural to use. He also began to create heads using Photoshop and cutting images out of magazines.
