Artist of the Month - Joel Reid

Joel is a long-time member and artist of the Nicola Valley Arts Council and we're thrilled that he will soon create some public art in Merritt - stay tuned!


Get a glimpse of Joel's art and process in this video.



You can also find out more about him and his art on joelreid.ca, where his About page shares the following about him:


Joel Reid has developed a unique art style, drawing on the traditions of abstract expressionism. His raw and emotionally-charged paintings have a graphic quality and signature of urban graffiti, but his works are more introspective. They are not specifically intended to make people feel, see, or think anything in particular, but rather to communicate visual concepts that are authentic and deeply meaningful to the artist. His works have been described as deceptively simple and very powerful.


You can see one of Joel's pieces in our latest Art Show - Art Heals - at the Nicola Valley Arts Centre, on right now until March 31.
