KaminskiArt: the Art of Joseph A Kaminski



My art is available for purchase directly from me. More importantly, I'd love to hear from anyone interested in or curious about my art.

Biographical Info: Born in Chicago, I received a BFA in Painting from the University of Illinois in 1980 and moved to New York City that same year where I continue to reside on the Upper West Side. I have always been interested in botanical imagery, occasional abstract work, photography, and the human figure. As a gay man and artist, I celebrate the male body with an unapologetic and clear queer sensibility. 

I was represented by the Amos Eno Gallery in NYC from 1989 to 1995, and the Cortland Jessup Gallery, Provincetown, MA, from 1991 to 1997.  Several of my penis paintings were included in the feminist exhibition “True Phallacy: the Myth of Male Power” at the Michael Clark Gallery in Washington, D.C. in 1994 resulting in images of my work being published in the Italian publication, L’espresso, and Penthouse Magazine. Two of my paintings and several ceramic pieces are included in the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art collection with one painting featured in their 2009 exhibition and catalogue, “Treasures of Gay Art from the Leslie-Lohman Gay Art Foundation.”  

In 2019, my work was included in 2 group shows at the Blackbird Gallery in Chelsea, NYC, and in 2020 I participated in the pop-up exhibition "Uncensored: Queer Art" in March, and "Works At Home" at ARTpartmentNYC in October, both in Brooklyn. In 2022, I've exhibited with the Art y Honey pop up galleries at Village Works in the East Village and on the Upper West Side at Blondies Sports Bar.
