The Art of Joseph Palermo

Joseph Palermo's paintings evidence a special aesthetic intelligence. His canvasses and constructivist works possess tremendous movement, visual activity, form and color. He has the unique ability to blend a sense of childlike freedom with the strong use of geometric form. This juxtaposition creates Palermo's fresh and exciting style. He is both painter and poet, as demonstrated through his powerful wall sculptures and paintings. His approach is vibrant and versatile.

Palermo's aesthetics derive in part from his memorable meeting in Mallorca Spain with, and some studies under, the Catalan-Spanish Master Joan Miró. Extensive world travel combined with the influence of old-world Spain in particular (where Palermo maintains a residence) have given him the depth and opportunity for creativity that all serious artists need for their growth. He was one of the few American artists invited to display work at the Museo Español De Arte Contemporeneo Madrid. Palermo has the unique opportunity to be driven by two different worlds, the old and the new. His visions are masterful due to these influences and experiences.
