Joe Keinberger - Art and Illustration

My Work is largely influenced by mythology, folklore, classic horror films and an appreciation for the dark and macabre that can only be instilled by growing up through many a New England autumn. I tend to use a variety of media in my pieces, and techniques, so that the finished pieces are a mixture of drawing and painting as well as explorations of textural surface involving sanding, scratching and carving. I present these ghosts, demons and devils as they are, as complicated beings with secrets to hide and protect, and histories forged in chains that bind them to the melancholy of the mortal world.
