Collection: Emerging Incarcerated Artist: Joseph Yasurek

Joseph Yasurek has been consigning art with us since 2020, during our national art contest. He is a family man, devoted to showing his art to the world to help his family while he serves his sentence in Florida. 

It is hard to narrow down Joseph’s specialty, he is good at everything! Painting on canvas, on cardboard, collage, with coffee stains… Abstract or realistic, dark or joyful, his limits and skills are expandable. 

One thing Joseph transmits through all his work is emotion. The cute bugs on a lotus leaf will make you instantly smile while “Introspection of an incarcerated parent” will have your mind spiral into the questioning of mass incarceration by the US criminal justice system.
