Artist, Joseph Starkweather (me) was brought into the world as the son of an Architect and Fine Artist, both parents are alumni of the university of Wisconsin -Madison. From the age of 2 until this very second, art and design has been my life and my love. I am blessed to work full time as a Muralist but it’s far more than a job, it’s my existence. I take great pride in every square inch of any wall I paint. I have a genuine and authentic background in street art, while painting tunnels, abandoned structures and rusted out train cars, mostly in the 90’s, was a great teacher of a medium that is now the world standard in mural art (Custom artist grade spray cans). My work as a muralist has brought my love for the medium along with the use of sign and pin stripe brushes and other various tools to the next level. What I learned from the Street Art culture is something no YouTube video could ever teach. Being at the forefront of a movement that is now the most in demand form of art in the world is something I take serious and I make sure each client knows they will be getting a very authentic piece when they hire me for a job...whether it be a spray paint dominant project, a hand painted sign, or a more traditional brush painted mural. I believe that an honest, kind persona and solid character are very important but besides that, image, persona, and gimmicks have no place in professional design- THE WORK must speak for itself! Thanks for your time and stopping by my page.
