The Art of Yousef Balat
Illustrating Life, Real and Imagined
Hoop Snake Graphics LLC
As a classically trained artist and illustrator I am drawn to image, illustrating life: both real and imagined.
Utilizing traditional and digital media I strive to convey the narrative through mark, color and/or atmosphere. Within my style I alter the look depending on what the story needs and what the media dictates.
With my tools and visual language I explore the gamut of visual story telling including the nuances of portraiture, the quirkiness of cartoon, the humor of social media and the grandiose epic of history/mythology painting.
My Work has shown in galleries and museums nationally and internationally including:
Salzkirche Museum, Salzwedel, Germany
Museo de la Naicon, Lima, Peru
Shanghai Art Museum, Shanghai, China
Athens School of Fine Art, Athens, Greece
Arlington Museum of Art, Arlington, Texas, USA
Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, Istanbul, Turkey
My work can be seen in Corporate, Public and Private collections throughout the world.
Thank you for your interest.
