The Twisted Reality of JoKa

Erotica // Monday, March 25, 2013
Based out of Philadelphia, JoKa's humorous and often unsettling acrylic paintings represent a pastiche of influences and symbolism, consisting of multiple layers of meaning that oscillate between the patently absurd and the deadly serious. His work skews and distorts the human body, obscuring faces to an almost depersonalizing degree, yet retaining a sense of surreal familiarity deeply rooted in the pop culture nostalgia of the collective unconscious.
