THE ART OF JACK JOYA ~ DEADLY GRAPHIC STUDIO
SOCIAL MEDIA LINKS
I have been drawing and painting in the traditional sense of the word for 40 years. My formal artistic education was limited to a NYS Regents diploma in Art History as well as a few studio art classes in college. Up to that point my sole inspiration came from the Great Pablo Picasso, I saw his work in '86 at the MOMA and toughly enjoyed his style and began drawing and painting in that fashion.Years went by and I could not see creating art a way to earn a living as an urban 20 something outside NYC. I finished my formal education and went to Post Graduate School at Fordham U. to become a special education teacher. 20 years later I still teach, have a wife and 3 kids with a dog and paint and draw more than ever, still living in the burbs of NYC. I began a small studio, aptly named for my hero; Picasojo Art Studio and recently had my first show, looking for more all the time. As a teacher, I have implemented drawing to build confidence, focus and fine motor skills to my students who have Aspergers. They enjoy it as well as cartooning, which I teach in my studio to young artists.
