Art by Angelo Giokas: Selected Works

As an artist coming of age at a time when the distinctions between modern art, street art and traditional art seem to be irrelevant, Angelo’s paintings embody an energetic clash of aesthetic paradigms. Collage elements and painterly textures blend with heavy-handed abstraction and landscape references. The works embody his desire to cultivate raw, self-taught talent into something romantic, passionate and successful. He lives and works in Queens, New York, where urban expression has become an integral facet to his style, including graffiti, wheatpaste, photography, and "metropolis residue." This, coupled with an innate, spiritual recognition for nature, allows for the work to become alive and mysterious.
