Zo Damage is excited to announce Joel Morrison as the first guest artist to exhibit at Zo’s new bricks and mortar store with a collection of Joel’s “Unusual Pet Portraits”.
Joel Morrison is a local legend and artist who paints people’s pets. He does other things too, such as play in two of our favourite bands – Bodies and Tankerville – and runs Melbourne’s most loved dive bar and live music haunt, The Old Bar in Fitzroy.
Joel’s unusual approach to portraiture depicts the pets as anthropomorphic: a human body, an animal’s head. To date, Joel has painted many dogs and cats, as well as the occasional rabbit. He is hoping one day to be commissioned to paint a pet lizard.
Joel’s Pet Portraits will be available to buy from the Zo Damage store at QVM. You can also contact Joel for any commissions you are wanting or to just have a chat.
