Joseph Schwartzman




Joseph Schwartzman is a professional artist who specializes in oil painting. His current body of work comprises two distinct categories: paintings that merge nebulas with human figures and traditional portraiture. More recently, his portraits also include nebulas or textures derived from nebulas. The incorporation of nebulas within his oil paintings serve as an artistic declaration, emphasizing humanity’s inherent connection to the cosmos. This thematic exploration underscores his belief in the primordial role of consciousness as the driving force of the universe, a concept he endeavours to convey through engaging and whimsical artistic expressions. Our contemporary era offers us unprecedented access to the breathtaking imagery captured from the depths of space, which serves as a wellspring of inspiration for his artistic endeavors. While his nebulas may initially appear abstract, they, in fact, constitute authentic representations of celestial landscapes. Schwartzman's artistic journey commenced in the early 1980s, culminating in his formal education at the University of British Columbia during the 1980s, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
