ABOUT THE ARTIST
Joan Scheibel is a contemporary abstract painter currently living and working in Los Angeles. Scheibel received a full scholarship from the prestigious Otis/Parson College of Art and Design and would later study Illustration at Platt College of Design. Scheibel established a prominent seventeen-year career in graphic design owning a business that was at the forefront of album packaging, branding and advertising. As a venerable professional in both packaging and marketing, Joan’s client list included notable clients such as Capitol Records, Universal Records, Cherry Music and many others. Her career spanned every genre of music and she created the cover art for Meredith Brooks’ iconic song, I’m A Bitch, which would go on to be an international #1 single.
Turning her attention inward for a more personal form of expression, Joan has pursued a fine art career for nearly a decade. Her work quickly earned acknowledgement from collectors, peers, and galleries throughout California, New Mexico and New York, and she is a consistent winner of the juried ArtSlant Showcase awards given to emerging and mid-career artists that exhibit both great potential and commitment to their practice.
In her current ‘Maestro’ series, Scheibel captures a kinetic and powerful energy. A distinguished figure points toward the sky and embodies vitality and positivity with a fusion of past practice and technique that is now met with a specific distinction. The viewer is captivated by the movement and intensity of the work, and further engaged by the depth and curiosity of the conductor therein.
