Born in Manassas, VA in 1967, Joey Havlock experienced a childhood that provided an optimal environment for the later development of his artistic expression. The sphere of creative and character diversity to which he was exposed has inspired many of his individual works as well as series such as his Liquid Geometry and the Master Minds.
After arriving in New York City in early 1986, Havlock delved into the world of technology consulting, and systems development. As an artist he recognized modern technology to be as much a part of the creative process as the development of fine pigments and brushes thought by many to be conventional artist tools. Havlock’s technical expertise in tandem with his creative background provided the ideal combination for the phantasmagorical imagery that would later become the essence of his many styles.
Inspired by artists such as Al Held, Rene Magritte, Mark Kostabi, Peter Halley, and Damian Loeb, Joey Havlock has spent more than 20 years in New York City exploring and developing his craft as an artist. Current series include the Master Minds, Liquid Geometry, Cocks, and Popademic, to name a few.
