About

Inspired by the expressive power of his medium and its history, Joseph Lorusso produces emotionally evocative oil on canvas paintings. His childhood trips to Italy, where he was exposed to the Old Masters and the country’s rich artistic heritage, sparked his interest in art. He initially studied watercolor painting and later switched to oils, teaching himself how to work with the latter material. He concentrates on urban and natural landscapes and the human figure, rendering his subjects in a naturalistic, impressionistic style. Lorusso is especially interested in painting ordinary people in everyday settings, which he invests with a sense of pathos and mystery. Through his work, he aims to connect to others by conveying universal human experiences. “I believe truly great art serves as a trigger into something deeper within all of us,” he says.
