Joel Cadman's Bio

New York-based contemporary figurative artist, Joel Cadman, makes oil paintings depicting strong contrasts of light and shadow of luminous forms, to help emphasize the character, depth and visual drama of the human subjects. The works feature paint applied in thin glazes that create a glow and
add depth to the subjects being represented. 
His work is influenced by Italian and Northern European Baroque painters, particularly Carravagio,
with a focus on contemporary themes and subjects. Joel has an ongoing series of portraits of internationally known illustrators, artists and designers, as well a continuing autobiographical painting series that is based on events of his life from childhood to the present.
