I am a photographer with a background in photojournalism, fine art portraiture and landscape photography. Although I use digital and film based cameras, my love is wet plate collodion. It is a process invented in the 1850's which uses chemistry, glass, metal, a big view camera and a little bit of sunlight to create photographs.

I have been using the process for nearly 10 years and find it so rewarding. I started making wet plate images after the world seemed to convert from film based cameras to digital. I was working for a newspaper at the time, and we moved from the darkroom to the newsroom. The convenience of digital cannot be matched, but I felt like I lost the creative part that drew me to photography.

I have been using the wet plate process as a living historian, demonstrating the process as it would have been done at Civil War and other history events. I dress in wool, live in a tent for the weekend, explain and demonstrate the process to participants as well as the public.

I also create landscape, still life and modern portraiture with the processes as well. It is a lot of fun, and a complicated but enjoyable way to make photographs :)

Joseph Gallo has been an artist/experimental print maker for over 35 years.

Early on, collaborations with other artists during his nearly three decade involvement with father and co-founder of Editions in Cast Paper, started Joseph on a life long involvement with all that is intrinsic to paper.
The list of artists during the rise of this fine arts publishing house that specialized in hand paper making include, Victor Vasarely, Agam, Hanna Barbara, Peter Max, Rene Gruau, and Stan Lee, to name a few. (Examples available for viewing at "Joseph Gallo art" on Facebook.com). Joseph is a life long artist.

'What truly drives me is the endless path of discovery that takes place through experimentation and collaboration.
Gallo's current works involve a series of preparations to pre-print papers for Giclee. 'Realizing I could create Photoshop-like effects chemically was a huge breakthrough for me' Gallo adds while discussing his processes.
As far as subject matter, Gallo is motivated by human expression. I recently created works of art for the Jimi Hendrix foundation.
This project involved coupling 35 mm black and white, never before seen prints with Hubble deep space digital imagery. The end result, is a moving graphic depiction of Jimi's sonic inflection (available through, Dan Jaffe(805) 497 7300). Also see, http://gunnarnordstrom.com/

From print making to createing drawings, paintings and to digital imagery one thing stays the same for me. I am determined to employ the tools best suited to convey the feeling I want to express by what moves me originally. As a result, I feel my initial personal experience inspired from the source of the moment is imparted into the work forever.

Regarding specific mediums, I feel at ease with pen and ink, graphite, charcoal, fabric dyes, colored pencil, and oil pastels for rendering. I have worked with oils, acrylics, and water color. As well, I have been employing digital art (17 yrs) and its output for the last four years . I believe in Giclee printing enough so to have acquired a 42" HP 800 that I generate all of my distressed photo works and digital art onto canvas and pre-print, chemically manipulated water color paper with.

Aside from creating fine art, I have always relished the opportunities I have had come along to do graphics for musicians (C.D. covers and albums) The last Gentlemen's "Something to someone" or "cousin of the blues" for Keith Harden, or the promo posters for the Laurence Hobgood Quartet just this last summer. I am always happy to work up promotional material for "Go Retro" the everything vintage shop as well. There has been quit a bit of this activity for me over the years. Numerous examples of my electronic art and chemically altered Giclees can be seen at Fineartamerica.com (search "Joseph Gallo"). Also see, numerouse works at "Pinterest" again, Joseph Gallo.

This artist is available for the generation of custom and site specific installations. Joseph Gallo is also available for corporate/commercial design as well as decorative design. Years of hands on experience with plastics casting, mold making, paper making, silk screening, industrial painting/surface design, fiberglass, epoxy and plaster molding make this artist, designer a solid addition to any artistic, industrial or craft production settingKlær Nike

Welcome, I am Trey Coppland. an Artist and Designer living in Champaign, Illinois. As an Abstract medium, I use bright bold color to create a story. My work has a contemporary to modern flare to it. I like to paint on a large-scale platform, the bigger the canvas, the bigger the story. My art is split into albums, on my Google Plus Page.
When I work with clients, I like to collect ideas from their homes, lifestyles, ect. I as minimalist, I like the art to reflect the statement and color scheme of the room. Really, I want the art to be focal point the room.

I love to work with Urban Lofts, large open spaces, exposed piping, brick walls, and over sized windows, from ultra modern to eclectic styling. A loft or a warehouse space are two of my favorites to design spaces. There are some many have so many unique options to consider.

I use Tumblr for all my work , art, and music. I edition I have a blog titled "Mafia Art Blog", I post my art work, friends and some of my favorite's artist's as well.
