New Jersey gets a little more interesting every time Joe Iurato installs site-specific street art all over the place. The street and commercial artist creates incredibly detailed wooden cutouts, often based on photography (mostly his own, but sometimes of others too), and sometimes he bases his work on famous artworks too.
On his process, Joe explains: “I use layers of hand cut paper and spray paint to create texture and form – a modern adaptation of an old-fashioned printing process. My art is nothing more than the exploration and documentation of personal experiences. These are my stories and how I choose to tell them. The site-specific placements of the pieces often utilize the urban environment to complete their narratives.”
The New Jersey-based artist isn’t limited to doing wood cutouts, but on some level it helped catapult his career. He does paintings and installations too, on top of commercial work that boast of a diverse but awesome roster. Past clients include the following: Adidas, ESPN, Nike, the NBA, NBC’s Sunday Night Football, Sprite, The New York Racing Association, Mike Tyson’s Iron Mike Productions, and Space Ibiza/NYC.
Here are some of his latest cutouts, with a few old favs of ours here at TAE:
