We love these little dudes. Of course, at first, you think there is some photo trickery involved, but at a closer look, you can tell that Joe Iurato is just really good at creating characters that fit seemlessly in their surroundings. As Joe notes, "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. The pieces form an abstract of my life."
