"If the word "ominous" doesn't sum up Joey Remmers' work, I don't know what does. Desolate snowscapes, icy rivers, sea beasts, and other perils await each painting's protagonist, and we the viewer can only look on in delicious suspense."
Joey was born and raised in small town in Southern California. His interest in art began at an early age, prompting him to find creative outlets for his innate ...talent. At 19 years old, he began tattooing, which became both his profession and artistic medium for the next ten years. Following his success as a nationally recognized tattoo artist, his focus turned to illustration and painting, exhibiting at galleries including CoproNason, M Modern, Thinkspace Gallery and Corey Helford Gallery. Joey now works as both an illustrator and a private tattoo artist in Orange, CA where he lives with his wife and children.
"I've always like the idea and feel of peaceful, serene landscapes but laced with sinister, underlying themes."
Joeys work has appeared in galleries across the United States and abroad as well as on the covers of several Literary Journals and Magazines.
Remmers creates a series of compelling visual narratives to create timeless moments and intimate snapshots.
