Quiet and unassuming, this recent graduate from the School of Visual Arts in New York does not exude your “typical” artist personality. With an affect that seems more computer-nerd than creative, Joe Boginski is a surprising talent acquired by the Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery. His illustrative pieces contain a playfulness and vision that emulates some of the comic greats. There is a primitive yet expressive quality about Boginski’s work; his drawings are constantly teasing with the mind of the viewer, and each look unveils a new, humorous element. Working in pen and pencil, the stylistic delicateness to the line-work and edges of Boginski’s drawings generate an aura of intrigue.
