Joey Vaiasuso

San Diego, California



A multi-disciplined artist based in southern California, I’m driven to create by passion. My creative journey started in woodworking and fine furniture, while further exploration for more freedom in form led to metal sculptures and outdoor art. Artistic experimentation with deep curiosity of a new medium and love of color inspired my latest passion for abstract expressionism.

Each one of my works is deeply inspired by the colors, process, and most importantly the vibe and feeling during creation; with music being a huge catalyst to this process..

I want the viewer to feel the energy and mood that genuinely went into every stroke, scrape or splat that finds its way to my canvas. These techniques may appear aggressive, pumped up, mostly happy, and rarely sad; it will always be revealed in my choice of colors, textures and tones.

Paint is my medium of choice due to its fluidity and broad range of colors, which tend to reflect and represent my moods at the time of creation. The foundation of my subject matter mostly stems from my core roots of being a sculpture artist. When making sculpture I like to stack shapes, forms and lines to create movement which transcends into a feeling of human nature, reminiscent of everyday objects abstracted in time. I really enjoy working in abstract, the natural and spontaneous flow of the process allows each work to unfold in an unpredictable and surprising end result of a moment in space and time.
