About Joe Coleman (painter)

  • Joseph Coleman (born November 22, 1955) is an American painter, illustrator actor and performance artist.
  • He has been described as the ‘Walking ghost of Old America’, by his wife, photographer Whitney Ward, for his over-riding interest in the historical arcana and personae that often populate his paintings.
  • Of Coleman's work, the New York Times wrote that, “If P.
  • T.
  • Barnum had hired Breughel or Bosch to paint sideshow banners, they might have resembled the art of Joe Coleman.” While Berlin's Tagesspiegel said of Coleman, "Like [George] Grosz in the 1920s, he holds a drastic mirror up to his own times." Coleman lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
  • His apartment and studio, called the Odditorium, is a living museum to his obsessions; a collection of artifacts, objects and documents from wax museums, crime museums, churches, pathology museums and sideshows.
