Santa Maria Magdalena
“Santa Maria Magdalena is the name of a Cemetery I visited in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I spent hours photographing the marble statues . I’ve since been using the images for my recent work, translating the marble into colour for murals/surfboard art and portraits”
Joe Greenaway is a St Ives based artist. His work is a collision between ‘fine’ art and ‘street’ techniques, blending the spontaneous use of a spray can with the meticulous process of painted portraiture. Although a lot of Joe’s work involves the use of a spray can, he considers his work as ‘fine’ art rather than ‘graffiti’. Central to his mixed media canvases is the human figure, which is not always immediately recognisable.
