About Art By Joseph

About Joseph (JOE)

Artist Joseph Gagnepain has been creating artwork and deeming himself as an artist for as long as he can remember. Whether it be drawing, painting, sculpting (in many different mediums), or playing with logos and designs on the computer; Joseph enjoys the artistic process and seeing an idea manifest into a visual form.

Gagnepain does commission work for private clients, small businesses, municipalities, schools, museums and corporations.

Artist Statement:

Joe Gagnepain is engaged in the task of creating something meaningful from society’s refuse, working it into monumental works of art. Gagnepain mimics living forms with inorganic matter, creating animals, insects, plants, and whimsical abstractions from garbage. He works primarily in metal and plastic; including bicycle parts, plastic toys, antique metal pieces, car parts, and anything that can be scavenged to reduce environmental impact.

Joe believes his art should serve the interests of his community by offering accessibility of his work for all to enjoy and be inspired by. Gagnepain’s pieces are meant to be outside, to be viewed by many, and be close to the natural world which informs them. To Joe, inspiration comes from many places, and interaction with the public is an important part of his artistic process.
