joeiurato  It's the little things...

Throwback... 2011. "Restoration of Self". Before I put the woodcuts outside, I would put them in shadow boxes, floating over black and white photos I'd taken with a Holga. This sort of thing seems popular lately, so It'd probably make me unoriginal to revisit the idea... #invinoveritas

Saturday Morning Capers.
Something new for the "Art of Spraypaint" group show, curated by @thelorizimmer - opening at @wallworksny on April 1st. #woodcutout #stencil #spraypaint #artofspraypaint #joeiurato #capers #mischief #andapigeon

Studio wall.. a combo of old works, sketches, bad lettering, test sprays, photos of my kids, ideas, woodcut errors and APs, works from friends, rolls of canvas, and clever wiring. This is what I look forward to and love being surrounded by each and every day.

Commission. 30" x 40" , Spray paint on clayboard.
To the Jewish community, the Lubavitcher Rebbe was largely considered one of the most important spiritual leaders of our time. And the story here is that on Sundays, people would stand in line by the hundreds to meet him and receive a single dollar bill. With each dollar he handed out, he encouraged that person to give it to charity. By passing the dollar bill on, it would benefit all involved. Many times people would keep the blessed dollar bill because of its spiritual value and instead donate another one of their dollars. I've talked to a few friends about this and it amazes me how many have a dollar, or one that's been passed on to them, from the Rebbe. While I may practice a different faith, the beauty and sentiment of the action here transcends religion. It is an act of human kindness and hope. The story was very moving to me, and I was honored to paint this commission for the gentleman (or at the time young boy) in the picture. Many thanks to @matzarob for the introduction. #joeiurato #stencil #spraypaint #fineart #lubavitcher #faith @jerrysartistoutlet

If you follow my work, you probably can see that I enjoy painting children- especially my own kids. They inspire me to remember how special that sense of curiosity and wonder truly is. It doesn't have to get lost on us as we grow older. Oftentimes, my work reflects those flash moments of a child's discovery. Here, my son Maddox was observing some ants carrying food. Scroll through for the woodcutout and mural the moment inspired....

She's back! 13th and Third Winery's 2016 Rosé is available for ordering. It still features the label art I created for last vintage. I'm also excited to announce that I will collaborating with @loganhicksny and @rubin415 on the winery's inaugural red and white wine labels this year, too. For now, drink pink and stay tuned for more...

Catch 22

Feels like spring today.
