Joe Becker

Joe Becker is a Toronto-based artist and graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design. Becker’s classical approach to image making, developed in his final year, expresses a love for outmoded techniques and aesthetics, with an emphasis on the craftsmanship of the old masters in palette and in the richness of imagery. The dreamy ambiguity of the weary figures is fused with both his bizarre sense of humor and childhood memories, and create the core of his playful yet twisted universe. Becker has exhibited his work in New York, Miami, Leipzig, Madrid, Dusseldorf, London, and Toronto.
