"Joe Papagoda, an accomplished young artist living and working in North Haven, Connecticut, is gaining greater attention now for blazing new conceptual frontiers." - Coastal Connecticut Mag
Although a majority of Joe's artwork is formed in a fluid & organic manner with color dominated arrangements of erupting color & hidden details that awaken a certain creative vision in the minds of the viewer - he also creates dramatic photographs, and semi-abstract artworks - subverting the common concept that artist's are contracted to a single approach. Additionally, his artworks are often paired with poetic titles to create a sense of mystery, and narration that allows the viewer’s mind to wander further into the conceptual meaning of the artwork. Joe creates his artwork with the intention of creatively inspiring the viewers.
Gifted since childhood, Joe self-taught himself the fine arts while developing a diverse set of skills early on and in such a way that was true to his own natural ability and later advanced to study at the Academy of Art University, receiving an AA in 2014, and a BFA in 2016.
