Joi Murugavell is an artist deeply moved by humour, strength and song lyrics. Her paintings are spontaneous and “on the spot” without too much prior planning and are collected by people in knowing need of a laugh.
Art is her means of finding escape and understanding. Her paintings are part abstract art — with large, blocked-out colourful shapes, and part Dr. Suess — with zany characters that all meet and interact.
Joi creates a world where bizarre characters act out the nuanced interactions that we all face in our day-to-day life.
