Artist Joey DeRuy has adapted to his surroundings and absorbed a wide array of influences due to his childhood spent in Montana, Hong Kong, Kenya and Maine. Born in the late 70’s to American philanthropists, Joey was influenced by the modern art and portraiture he observed as a young child. At the age of 11, Joey was featured in his first art show in Helena, MT establishing a career in art. His works in pen and ink have been utilized to create tattoo art, ad illustrations, international magazine recognitions, and candle illustrations. He has since expanded into oils, acrylics and mixed media to create the technologyinfluenced characters that grace his paintings.

He has some achievements under his belt, such as a Smithsonian institute nomination in Washington DC.
