Works by Thomas-Joseph Carrieri


Now through September 9
Peninsula Ballet Theatre
1880 South Grant Street in San Mateo

 


 

About the Artist:

Thomas-Joseph Carrieri is a Bay Area transplant. The Brooklyn born Post-pop artist is inspired by the hard black lines of Keith Haring and Indie comic books, and his palette is influenced by the candy-colored graffiti covered subways of 70's New York City.

His aesthetic captures both the tongue-in-cheek wit of Pop Art idol Andy Warhol and the larger-than-life fun of Jeff Koons.

The playfulness of comic book portraiture and the sincere cultural commentary get along nicely in his work and can be seen interacting throughout his career. Although partially self-taught, the artist worked his craft on the street in his early years before taking a serious stab at art. He would not consider himself an "outsider artist" in the least.

 

His admiration of the academic tradition led him to study in the studio system of figurative painter Mark Greenwald. His painting style evokes emotional connections through childhood toys and games, science fiction, and pop culture nostalgia in general.

His work has been featured in the digital pages of coindesk.com, complex.com and the SF Gate.
