Artist Joe Giuffrida paints a scenic view of Charles Bridge extending the Vltava River. The bridge's archways provide the energy or sense of movement versus the still shapes of the city buildings. Joe decides to go with a mixed-media approach to the piece based on the opaque quality of the components - carving out the buildings, trees, and the bridge from solid forms. "Depth of field was not a concern, rather capturing the interesting flat shape of the structures," says Joe.

Artist Joe Giuffrida paints impressionist landscapes frequently balanced with architectural arrangements. His artistic vision diverges from traditional styles depending on the subject at hand. "My creative energy is best developed through being on-site, observing a location, and getting the feel of the environment," says Joe. An expression of what is felt but not necessarily seen flourishes in his work, pushing the limits of color and value beyond what is there. Joe sought mentorship through workshops and college classes, then supplemented his learning by reading books on art techniques. He developed a firm belief in his craft being good through the perception of feeling rather than visuals. Emotional connections hold a crucial part of his creative process, challenging himself to be able to convey his responses while leaving room for the viewer's interpretation. He works in two studios, one for subtle watercolor painting and the other for bold and heavy acrylics and oils - systemized by organized clutter. His work has been featured in American and European publications and displayed in England, Germany, France, and the United States. Outside of painting, he channels his prowess as a musician, spending considerable time learning new guitar music. American culture, history, and biography also occupy his evenings when he has time to spare.
