Born and raised in Queens, New York, Angelo Giokas is a young artist whose self-taught practice lives in a state of prolific ambition and potential.

His paintings embody an energetic clash of aesthetic paradigms. Often, collage elements and painterly textures are blended with heavy-handed abstraction and landscape references.

Drawing inspiration from ephemeral urban landscapes of NYC, his abstract paintings result in a textural, hodge-podge style where the process is emphasized over the product.

Interests in architecture, post-pop, metaphysics and the natural world culminate and elevate physical, street energies into higher forms.
