A JOSEPH ARTHUR RETROSPECTIVE (Art) EXHIBITION


JOSEPH ARTHUR, RETURNS TO THE NAVARRO RESIDENCE
FOR A RETROSPECTIVE ART EXHIBITION ON FEBRUARY 16TH, 2013.

February 12, 2013 (Los Angeles, CA) -- The Navarro Residence in Highland Park, CA, is proud to present: “A Joseph Arthur Retrospective (Art) Exhibition”, on Saturday, February 16th, from 6:00-10:00 pm. This will be the second exhibition of works created by the critically acclaimed artist, and virtuoso singer/songwriter/guitarist, curated by Navarro, at The Navarro Residence.

Arthur’s artwork has graced the sleeves of his entire discography; the sleeve design for his 1999 extended play Vacancy was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Recording Package. Curator, Navarro, is also a longtime collector of Joseph’s art and owns several original pieces, including the mixed media work on canvas entitled: ‘Love Never Asks You To Lie’, drawn and painted live by Joseph, in his song video of the same title (link included.) Joseph’s first gallery exhibition was, MOMAR at Vertigo Gallery, in London, England, October 2006.    


Though Joseph Arthur’s first passion is the visual arts, he is better known for his musical talents after being discovered by Peter Gabriel in the mid-nineties. "When he was starting fifteen years ago, I was struck by the strength and visceral quality of Jo's paintings. They seem to connect to Expressionism, Art Brut, Basquiat and the Graffiti movement. I remember encouraging him to take the painting seriously and it has been great to watch its evolution. Jo is a really unusual, interesting and talented artist in music and art".  – Peter Gabriel


The Navarro Residence was established in 2012, with the purpose of offering a non-traditional exhibition space that promotes an atmosphere of experimentation via a personally curated art collection; along with an interactive opportunity for guests to experience what it is like “living with art.” Curator/Collector Navarro purchased her first piece of art in 2009. In addition to being an avid collector, she is also a television producer. Navarro’s collection also includes original works by: Cristian "SMEAR" Gheorghiu, Gregory Siff, Scott Michael Ackerman, Herakut, TMNK (The Me Nobody Knows), Evo Soria JR., Brady Smith, Leba, Neal Crosbie, Patrick Haemmerlein, David Hinnebusch, Bert Esenherz, K H Number Seven, and many more.

In May of 2013, exclusive new works by Joseph Arthur will be exhibited in a solo show at The Navarro Residence. The Navarro Residence is located at: 5704 Baltimore Street, Highland Park, CA 90042.
