The painting of Joe Dimino is rich in color, multi-layered, and thought provoking. His ability to manipulate a variety of mediums and types of canvass enables his work to cover a wide spectrum of focus and ideas. His oils are deep and thick, giving the canvass a texture of its own, and his watercolors are light and fresh, yet he is able to capture a luminous color usually reserved for heavier paints.
The subjects of his paintings are as varied as the mediums he chooses to work with. Although he favors portraiture and landscape, he is also interested in intangible, abstract weavings of color. The element of Joe’s painting that makes it different is the whimsical perspective through which he views his subjects. He does not intend to detail a subject, or capture its worldly essence; he instead desires to capture the color, shape, and texture through his own diverse view.
Born in 1972, in Kansas City, Missouri Joe Dimino spent most of his childhood hoping to become a major league baseball player. His love of art contrasted sharply with his desire to play ball and in college he decided to focus on communication studies hoping for a career in sports broadcasting. He soon realized that expression and communication were related to his former love of painting and he began painting again.
His work attempts to communicate via a medium other than oral communication. Paint, photography, and sculpture allow him to speak through color, texture, and form. His paintings are a communication of his own unique vision.
Joe is often inspired by everyday happenings of the city: stray scenes he captures on a whim. He is inspired by the random, startling color of nature, and the movement of day to evening. Most all of his work can be described as a moment captured and realized by color, line, and texture. Joe is always working on new ways to create and hone his craft. He searches for uncommon canvass, creative color, and inventive ways of blending genres.
His work is designed not only for private collection but also for the astute business owner. His most recent collection “Snapshot: Instants Idealized” has been specifically designed for corporate spaces, and wide audience public viewing. This particular collection ranges in subject from jazz to horticulture. Joe’s desire as an artist is to enrich the lives of people by offering them visual pleasure.
