Painter | Designer | Printer
Joseph Nicolia is a human resident of the planet Earth, in the Western Spiral Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. Journeyman painter, apprentice mountain biker and master grilled cheese cook, he is the co-founder and lead designer of The Fold and Variate Dot Net.
He has worked as a painter, designer and printer in the Washington DC area for over 15 years. His mixed-media works are a densely populated variation of abstract expressionism pulling from comic books, graffiti culture and modern graphic design. His influences include Raymond Saunders, Mike Mignola, David Carson, Futura 2000 and Dave Kinsey.
He really likes the way that letters look when someone cares about them.
