The art of Joe Horner

Artist Profile

Joe Horner

Joe Horner
This is a series of skateboard griptape cutouts that replicate images from Matisse's famous cutouts later in his career. As a child, I cut out grip drawings for my friend’s skateboards. There is a certain aspect of fun in which artists thrive at the beginning and end of life. This whole middle part of life seems a lot more serious. This work is related to the similarities and contradictions of old artists in the world of art and youthful creativity of skateboard culture. Instagram: @joe_horner_
