Mario Joyce is a self-taught African American artist based in Los Angeles. His process began early and was heavily influenced by prejudices experienced growing up Black and Queer in rural Ohio. He uses genealogical research, carefully sourced vintage collage materials and oil paint to explore how American History is steeped in selective storytelling that neglects to share the experiences of marginalized communi6es. Mario has recently exhibited at Future Fair in New York City last September and Felix Art Fair with Residency Art Gallery last February. His work is privately owned by many collectors throughout the United States and abroad.
