Joe Holbrook is an English-born self-taught painter, depicting all aspects of young adult life. The characters, attitudes, and the immediate surroundings of his social life are seen through his own young eyes.

Joe Holbrook is not shy in creating a piece that audiences may not see as beautiful. His work is much deeper than just an image portraying contrasting and hypercritical personalities; it is not meant to be understood instantly. Holbrook’s work is shrouded in secrecy, often cropped in a unique snapshot way to only tell part of a story.
