About Joseph

Joseph Crone graduated from the Herron School of Art and Design in the summer of 2010, focusing on the artistic delivery of the human figure and mind. While his attention to visual detail is in a constant state of evolution, the growth of conceptual intensity is his central concern.

Heavily inspired by Film Noir, Crone uses realistic technical drawing to explore intense human experience, often reflecting moments of hazy nostalgia or nightmarish delusions.

His recent accomplishments include the Robert Beckmann Emerging Artist Fellowship as well as the Stutz Artist Association’s Residency Program. Crone had also received placement within the top 30 finalists amongst 2100 entrants in the Saatchi Online Drawing Showdown.

His work has been exhibited locally and published in Colored Pencil Magazine, Strokes of Genius 2, BLUECANVAS Magazine issue #8, Studio Visit Magazine volume 15, and Southwest Art Magazine.
