Joel Chalen’s art reveals his truth. He reaches beyond the obvious to express his imagination in stunning works of art.
Born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, Joel’s first impressions of the world were in that city of contrasts. The rich environment of a bustling city juxtaposed with the biodiversity of the area influence his style to this day.
Joel’s career in computer science brought him to the United States where he continues to pursue his passion in art.
Although Joel never formally studied art, he experimented over time and honed his techniques on his own. His early influences came from Eduardo Kingman, Salvador Dali, and Pablo Picasso and credits them for his inspiration.
Joel’s work reveals a romantic idealist torn between living in a fast-paced world and keeping his traditional values intact. Joel finds his truth through his interpretations of the world and he strives to share that with others.
Joel has shown his work in several exhibitions and art shows. You can also see his work online.
Join Joel on his journey.
