In an effort to be non-conforming, Chuck Joseph kept his distance from the art scene to both protect and perfect his craft. In 2008, he felt that his work was finally ready for public introduction. Joseph was immediately accepted into galleries located in Laguna Beach and Huntington Beach and later invited into several reputable showcase events.
A self taught artist, Joseph likes to challenge traditional perceptions of art by sampling alternative media. Often there is a little something unconventional in his work. Joseph is inspired by controversial and eccentric art. One of his all-time favorite artists is Salvador Dali.
Joseph digs using palette knives- it gives him the sense he is “sculpting” each piece. His father, George, was a very gifted craftsman who sculped both fine art and furniture. As a boy, Joseph spent countless hours watching his dad sculpt in their garage, which motivated Joseph to begin working with palette knives.
Overall he hopes collectors find his work beautiful, unique, and interesting. Joseph strives to create artwork that will stand the test of time - to capture past, present, and future generations.
Joseph resides in Las Vegas, Navada with his wife, Morgan. During his free time, he enjoys traveling and playing with his pups, Sasha and Jasper.
