About the Artist:
Joey began his career in art by becoming a noted spraycan graffiti artist in Miami, FL as a teenager.
He later taught himself how to create digital art and worked for more than a decade for Southern Wine & Spirits; the nation’s leading wine and spirits distributor with operations in 35 markets, creating a great deal of the marketing
collateral seen on the major brands of the wine and spirits industry. He is responsible for thousands of flyers, menus and signage for notable brands as, Tito’s, SKYY, Patron, Absolut, Malibu and Punzone Vodka. If you live in the South or Southwest Florida regions, it's very likely that you've ordered your dinner from a menu he's created or sipped a cocktail for which he’s created the ad campaign visuals for. His eye for dynamic design style is unparallelled and his keen sense of marketing vision has retained him a solid position within the industry for decades to come.
Joey put down his spray cans years ago and picked up a camera in it’s place. He uses this medium to express his passion for the natural beauty of the landscapes of his native Florida. His photography has developed significantly over the last few years and now, he is taking his place in the ranks of other respected fine art photographers in this genre.
