Joe Montaño III: Poet & Outsider Artist
Hey! Look Over Here!
Check back again in the near future. I am a prolific painter, and I will post many more paintings, including abstracts, a Virgin Mary series and a Phoenix EveryOñe tribute collection.
Also, unless otherwise indicated, all of the paintings depicted on this page are for sale. If you have any questions concerning pricing or the piece itself, please contact me. I am happy to answer any questions or discuss a unique, commissioned piece of art.
I am a self-taught artist & poet currently living in Tempe, AZ, who prefers to create spontaneously on canvas, as freely as a child. I have called home many places across Panama, Europe & the South and West of the United States. My art is in the tradition of folk art & outsider art, with influences spanning graffiti art, cave drawings, African sculpture, Picasso, Basquiat, Klee, De Koonig & my own Hispanic heritage. My art reflects the underdog, the bull striving regardless of the cruel, lurking, ever-present matador.
I work in a variety of mediums, including acrylics, watercolor, oil pastels, pens, markers & collage. Most pieces are on framed or compressed canvas, with a few painted on wood and other found objects. I have completed several pieces of commissioned art. If you have a specific theme in mind, we can collaborate on a new work.
