Joe Banda

Painter / Illustrator

Joe Banda is an artist living and working in the North Shore of Massachusetts. Fueled by coffee and social anxiety Joe creates art work as a reaction to political events, failed social interaction, a love of cats, stress, and finding the humor in the daily struggle of being a human. Joe is mostly influenced by folk art, outsider art, tattooing, skateboarding, comedy and anything considered weird. Joe studied fine art and illustration at Delaware College of Art and Design and Montserrat College of Art, receiving both an AFA and a BFA. Joe lives in Beverly Massachusetts with his wife Amy and his giant cat Rambo. You can keep up with Joe's daily struggle on his instagram account.
