I am a commission portrait painter based in Texas working in a classical, old masters, realistic technique. I enjoy capturing emotion and moodiness in paintings with dramatic lighting. Sometimes I combine abstract and realism for modern and contemporary expressionism. Welcome to Joel Wright Art Studio.
Joel Wright (1975) is primarily a self taught artist from a young age. Joel focuses on realistic colors and values with expressive brush strokes and dramatic contrast and lighting in portraits, figure, and landscapes. The emotional content of the paintings is the primary objective capturing the mystery and communicating what can't be put into words. Joel views the creative process as an artist's alchemy of manifesting visions into reality.
