About the Artists
Joel Crosswell lives and works in Hobart. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at the Tasmanian School of Art, University of Tasmania in 2008.
Crosswell uses biographical stories and events in his work to connect with themes relating to spirituality, existence and the human condition. Using drawing and sculpture, Crosswell incorporates strange, comic and sometimes dark figurative characters to obscure and abstract biographical events.
Since graduating he has exhibited locally and interstate in solo and group exhibitions and Art Fairs. In 2011, Crosswell won the MONA Award for Drawing and in 2014, he was the winner of the Tidal: City of Devonport Art Award. In 2015, Crosswell was the recipient of a two month studio residency at the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris. Contemporary Art Tasmania granted Crosswell with a year-long studio residency in 2017.
He is currently represented by Bett Gallery Hobart and .M Contemporary in Sydney.
