Local Sketch Artist Joe Ferriso

CANOPY is partnering with local artist, Joe Ferriso, who makes miniature portraits from observation, painted in the finest pigments on 100% cotton paper measuring 2.5” x 3.75” with a sturdy clear plastic case for transport. He can capture an individual likeness in 5-10 minutes and many sitters come as a pair and sit for about 15 minutes. He has set up portraiture stations throughout San Francisco at public and private events. In the past three years, he has painted hundreds of portraits representing a diversity of people and sometimes their pets.The conversations and meetings are novel and open up creative conversations that culminate in the ownership of a unique and personal work of art.
Joe Ferriso, grew up in Long Island, NY, and is a graduate of the Cooper Union, he moved to San Francisco in 2009. Working in multiple mediums and disciplines, his artwork explores the numerous uses of paint to excite and connect people. He is a recent graduate of the Stanford MFA program.
