Fine Art Friday: Joe Iurato

I have been a fan of Joe Iurato's work for a long time purely for his incredible detail as a stencil artist and even more so for his recent interactive "in limbo" series of hanging figures placed at random spots in the environment around us. These smaller pieces appear dimensional, a testament to the skills, but are falt stenciled shapes placed into small spaces that catch you off guard and make you examine them closer. Iurato likes to hide his work and seems to enjoy the reward of people finding them or guessing where they are buried in the landscape of cities, parks and streets around us. Check out the images here and on his website and see the work of a hard working artist, father and concerned citizen.
