Maverick acts of graffiti and street art cover cities’ landscapes randomly against the backdrop of predefined, approved architecture. Random and uncontrolled aspects are juxtaposed with order and formality revealing a story of a polarised world – one where dictatorship meets free expression.
This blend of controlled and uncontrolled is translated as an intuitive response represented on canvas and demonstrates the artist’s unique eye in the discerning art from atypical sources.

- – This work was created from honing in on details seen in the nooks and crannies of Tel Aviv city life. Joanna’s signature style lifts random colours, elements and textures to create multi-medium, abstract work. The use of the Hamsa symbol for peace is more representative than is usual in her portfolio reflecting an emotional connection to the signs she saw of unity and hope.
