Joe Shlichta

A Recollection . Oil & Enamel on Linen . 90 x 58

Joe Shlichta is from San Pedro, California. He has drawn and painted since childhood, went to art school at Otis in Los Angeles and Cornish in Seattle, and worked as a studio assistant under the late Jack Bosson in Los Angeles.  Other than brief forays into children's book illustration and low budget independent film, he has been a painter by day and a bartender by night most of his life.  He has studied classical oil painting techniques at great length, and though his works may appear abstract at first glance, they are all created with traditional methods, laying many painstaking layers of paint on linen or panel.
