Joseph Ginsberg's background and formal training in art, sculpture, color science and photography, along with two decades of technical experience and experimentation have allowed him to create with thoughtful ingenuity. Guided by color and light, he integrates the organic elements of nature with the texture of everyday life, producing unpretentious forms, at once functional, practical, and ravishing. A native-born New Yorker, Ginsberg has a multi-faceted background that transcends the boundaries of artistic disciplines, just as his canvases transcend the boundaries between art and nature. His diverse training has given him the tools for his unique creative approach. He earned degrees from FIT (textile design), the School of Visual Arts (graphic design), NYU (filmmaking), and Pratt Institute (where he studied and then taught the techniques of the many varieties of printmaking). He left New York and went on to create and exhibit in Florence, Sicily and Paris, returning in 1983 to New York, where he now lives. Ginsberg has been involved with many shows both national and international, including Gallery Dauste (Hamburg), Laight Gallery and Barbara Walter Gallery (New York), Claudio Roucher (Paris), Santa Reparata Grafica d'Arte (Florence), Galleria Baldinotti (Sicily), and Fortman Studios (Florence). His work is in numerous private and corporate collections including those of Michael Jackson, Coca Cola, Christies East, the Metropolitan Opera Guild, Estée Lauder, and MTV.
