Joe Boissy is an abstract painter who has developed his artistic expressions with a visual accent on 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 letter shapes 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. “
