Joseph Alef

Born 1981
Hometown Berkeley, CA

Joseph Alef, though a soft-spoken individual, makes active paintings that radiate with energy. Blending an impressive array of colors interwoven with gestural and drip elements, Alef has created his own expressive visual language through his preferred medium of paint. Often beginning with more delicate fields of color, Alef integrates linear and more distinct graphic elements that form near-sculptural effects. Alef has been a studio artist at Creative Growth since 2001, and devotes much of his time to painting, though he also has explored ceramics as well. Like his paintings, the abstract ceramic tablets he makes are deeply layered with organic abstractions and vibrant colors.
