This piece is an homage to the late comic legend, Jack Kirby. The painting is based on Kirby's portrayal of the Incredible Hulk, as seen in Incredible Hulk #5 (1963).
Due to a breakneck working style (and a notoriously short supply of patience when it comes to watching paint dry!), virtually everything I paint is acrylic directly on canvas.
My “Symphony of Trees” and "Spellbinders & Dreamcatchers" series bring to life a vibrant world bursting with colors, movement and hope emerging from a dramatic perspective. Contrast plays a big part in all my work: contrast in colors, order along with chaos, geographic shapes alongside fluid, abstract motion. My “Portals Perceptions Visions” series take the overall theme of contrast and presents it through a surrealistic style. My “Landscapes” and “Urban” series convey nature and city life respectively via a modern, contemporary approach. My “Abstractions” series provides an abstract visual to contrast, bold colors and themes. And a personal favorite for both me and my customers are my custom portraits (of friends and family and popular figures & icons!)
My name is Joel Tesch. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I have exhibited all over California and throughout the Southeast US. My work has been sold to collectors all over the world (including UK, Sweden, Switzerland, Canada, Australia and more!) A native of Raleigh, NC, I grew up with an artistic bent from an early age. After living in several different locations (Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Atlanta, San Francisco and London), I recently settled back in the San Francisco Bay Area with my wife Leela and 3 daughters (Carly, 6 and identical twins Valerie & Isla, 4) and established my studio and art business, Joel Tesch Studio.
