Joseph Weinreb was born in New York in 1984. He is a self taught oil painter who finds inspiration from the work of the Old Masters, the Surrealists, comics, anime and science fiction. He has exhibited in galleries within the US for the last five years. Weinreb's work harks back to the past in both technique and theme. Each painting consists of multiple layers and glazing techniques that build up and develop his lifelike yet stylized surfaces. His work is known for its nebulous depiction of a time neither here nor there that challenges our own perception of memory and reality.
In 2015, Joseph opened Haven Gallery with his wife, Erica, in an effort to bring narrative and surreal art to Long Island, as well as the world.
