Joseph Watson: Stories Without Words

Stories Without Words is an exhibit of Joseph Watson’s paintings, drawings, and prints representing a career of story-driven art. The works on view span several of the artist’s current and past series; all inspired by the celebrations and challenges of life, and the artistic tradition of illustration.   

Joseph Watson, also known by his signature “JOEE,” grew up in Gardena, CA. An artist as observer, Watson was influenced by Los Angeles where he felt everyday life was filled with excitement, danger, culture, and love. After graduating from the ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, CA, he began applying his artistic hand to a variety of outlets including creating concepts for major video-game companies, designing toys for Mattel, mentoring other artists, donating his time to philanthropic endeavors, producing public art, and developing children’s books (most notably as illustrator for Go, Go, Greta series). In addition to his art making, Watson owned and operated one of Las Vegas’s most impactful Arts District galleries for over 12 years.
