Joe Papagoda
New Haven, Connecticut

For immediate release


Renowned artist Joe Papagoda has released information on his “Myths” series ( is a body of work which is allegorical, and timeless. These artworks are based loosely on the timeless archetype of ancient myths and evoke an expressive power in lieu of figurative suggestions by combining the intense emotional aspect of color theory with dynamic fluid imagery. They’re presented as color fields which are boldly known for their primordial essence – making them the perfect basis for such a mythic art. In further rejection of figurative imagery, these artworks are created in conjunction with narrative titles based loosely on Greek mythology which behave like short stories to serve in part as a mechanism meant to empower creative vision in the mind of the viewer – as if a story were being read – the abstract imagery sets the tone and expression, while the titles evoke the mind to wonder even deeper into the meaning behind the art.
This innovative new approach to abstract art has earned the artist much celebration, awards, and positive comments from curators and critics. In 2016 he won an award for one artwork in this series, “The Eos Crisis”, from Focus Point and Shape International online gallery – the curator was quoted as saying “Joe Papagoda is a young artist bound to make his mark”, More recently Joe collaborated with Art Star gallery (, and there offers his Myths series as exclusive limited edition prints. Joe has garnered over 35,000 followers in total across multiple social medias in less than a year for this series as well as having the series go on to be collected in most major cities in the USA, and collected overseas as well. Recently, Hotel Tilden has collaborated with Joe, describing him as a celebrated artist. Joe’s art is changing the way we see, understand, and respond to art – this topic is certainly worth further discussion. (
