Joe Black doesn’t like to refer to himself as an artist. Instead he boasts that he has a knack for piecing together thousands of custom one inch pins to form household icons. “No More Heroes” is a series of small edition prints based off mixed medium custom “button” works of art. While the overall image may be that of recognizable super heroes and heroine, the buttons themselves tell a different story. On top of custom made buttons, Joe Black also utilizes Lego pieces, aerosol, acrylic paint and tiny stainless steel balls and toy soldiers in his other pieces. What I’d really like to see is a time-lapse of Joe Black creating his work from grounds up. Who’s with me on this request?
