Artist Joe Average has a new canvas - photography!
Vancouver artist Joe Average is known and loved for his bright, whimsical pop-art. His images have adorned public squares; street banners; HIV awareness campaigns; Canadian postage stamps -- and public and private collections. Joe has been outspoken about his own journey with HIV for the past 28 years. He has worked to raise awareness and funds for issues related to HIV/AIDS and other charitable causes. And while he stepped away from his painter's easel several years ago -- Joe Average has a new medium for his artistic expression -- photography.
A new canvas -- but still full of that trademark Joe Average colour and eye for beauty. He's just launched a brand new website in which to showcase it -- and Joe came into the studio to talk about it. (click on 'read more' to see more of the photographic images Joe and I talk about in the interview)
