Joseph Abbati

Joseph Abbati’s work addresses social identity and the human condition; that is the common thread of my body of work. His areas of inquiry have included subcultures and contemporary life.



“Queeries,” is Joseph Abbati's inquiry on the masculine figure and forms of expression from a queer point of view. The paintings in this exhibit reveal masculine forms depicting queer identity, kinks, and beauty.
