About Joe Boissy

Joe Boissy is an abstract painter who has developed his artistic expressions with a visual accent on gestural, calligraphic, and lettering arts. In his work, the letters and character marks are an integral part of the composition and texture, giving the painting a unique characteristic. Navigating the shapes and colors in his work is not only pleasing to the eye but conveys a combination of seduction, liveliness, and reverie.

Boissy paints with alphabet marks, letters, and a slew of calligraphic strokes. Most of his paintings reveal western writings, with a hint of other cultures. He studied Asian, Arabic, Hebrew, and Ancient calligraphic arts, allowing him to go beyond the boundaries of traditional western alphabets.

“ We (humans) created the alphabets to communicate with each other, but the letters we created can speak to us – if we let them” says Boissy. “

Joe Boissy lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and can be reached at His work is regularly published and shown at several venues, including Letters Art Review, Kalligraphia, Alphabet, Filoli, and the Triton Museum.
