Joseph Meloy's Details
About Joseph Meloy
Joseph Meloy was born in New York City in 1982. Raised in the Lower East Side, from an early age, his eye was drawn to the immediacy of the art and graffiti that plastered the city streets. After several years working in the advertising industry, in 2010, Meloy founded Vandal Expressionism, Inc., a creative outlet for his primal, post-graffiti aesthetic.
The masked Meloy, creates work he titles “Vandal Expressionism” which is an amalgam of Pollock and Miró-esque shapes mashed into New York City’s graffiti and street art. Meloy’s style developed as he grew up on what was then the gritty lower East Side. The homegrown, yet unsettling feel of his pieces resonates with his audience in powerful ways on both their emotions and wallets
