Joel Rea is a highly acclaimed and multiple award-winning artist. Known for his surreal and allegorical paintings. Rea’s oil on canvas falls somewhere between the genres of hyperrealism. Renaissance photorealism and virtuoso realism. From this amalgamation of influences, Rea has created a unique style. Recognizable depicting social conscience. Personal introspection through his impeccable execution of the details of the brushwork. Inspired by the mysteries of the animal kingdom and the universe beyond. Rea’s meanings and stories touch on the vast complexity of the human condition. Rea combines contemporary visuals with the qualities of the sublime in painting. His images frequently represent: self-portraits. Tigers. Dogs. The sun’s rays breaking through the clouds. Destructive waves inspired by the turbulent Australian coastline where he played as a child.
