“My murals focus on creating dimensional space with the use of vibrantly colored geometric and abstract shapes. I also use clean lines throughout my pieces to enhance the graphic feel of the artwork. The end goal is to create something that exudes joyfulness and brings pride to the community in which it exists.”
Metro Detroit-based artist, Joey Salamon (b.1988, Lafayette, IN), combines eye-catching patterns, a rainbow color palette, and repeating three-dimensional geometric shapes in his work. His portfolio spans projects ranging from album cover art, larger-than-life street murals, and restaurant interior design.
Salamon grew up in the mid-century modern mecca of Midland, MI, where he continues to use architectural references from his hometown in his work. He graduated from Grand Valley State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art & Design in 2010. After graduating, Salamon moved several times across the US, expanding his artistic vision in places like the tiny Hawaiian island of Molokai, Chicago, and an internship with the internationally recognized artist, Jen Stark, in Miami.
