Joe Santos Fine Art

Artist Statement

My current work focuses on realistic watercolors of signs, fences, rusted metal and other industrial subjects. Employing atypical perspectives and compositions I attempt to make the ordinary visually interesting, and attempt to straddle the seam where representation meets the abstract. These paintings are done in the studio from the many reference photos I take of my subject matter.
