Joe Iurato

Joe Iurato, signs his work :01. It’s his belief that a single second is the most powerful measurement of time; it only takes a second to decide you’re going to move forward in a positive direction, regardless of the obstacles and challenges you’ll face in life. From that decisive moment on, he says, you should never look back.

Joe works primarily with hand cut stencils, acrylics and spray paint. He hopes the lion share of his art, whether on the street or in a gallery, inspires people to do good things. He believes it is our universal responsibility and priority to keep our children’s minds free from ignorance, bias, greed and hate – because what happens tomorrow will depend on the values instilled in them today. It is a message he’s known to share often within his paintings, and is very passionate about continuing.

While much of Joe’s work is socially conscious, there are also times he feels like being as random as each fleeting moment. And when that moment of inspiration strikes, wherever it may come from, he embraces it.
