B.F.A., Sculpture, 2009

Joe received his BFA from the Hartford Art School. He was selected as a candidate for The Mountain School of Arts (2012; Los Angeles, CA), nominated for the Wellesley College Alice C. Cole ’42 Fellowship (2013-2014; Wellesley, MA) and is currently pursuing his MFA through Hennessey Youngman’s (Jayson Musson) MFA on DVD program, in jest and in all seriousness. It’s a jam-packed DVD, so at least he can take his time and save tons of money.

While incorporating everyday items and popular commercial products, Keo's sculptural, installation and conceptual works utilizes semantics to bring forth issues of cultural identity and the evolution of language. He's also interested in the relationship between art and work, specifically the correlation of supply chain management/lean manufacturing and the art world.

He has participated in/ assisted with projects in Germany, United Kingdom, France, and has exhibited all over the United States.

He is a contributor to CT ArtList, a growing online arts resource for the State of Connecticut. Joe has also worked alongside Sharon L. Butler as a contributor for her award-winning blog, Two Coats of Paint.]

The Hartford Art School was a place to experiment. There were guidelines, but also a lot of freedom. The intimate teacher student ratio and studio spaces really created a sense of community. If you ever needed some feedback, they'd be someone there, from any department. There were no barriers. Collaboration and compromise was prominent in the school's attitude. The ability to adapt and cooperate with others is not just an artistic skill, but a valuable life skill that transcends fields.
