About Joëlle Storet

Belgian-born artist Joëlle Storet moved to Northwest Arkansas from Austria in 2001. Storet graduated from the University of Arkansas with a background in cultural anthropology, semiotics, linguistics, and art history. Her bold palette and multifarious interests have allowed her to communicate her history through paintings, graphic designs, murals, and a host of other mediums. Her works have been exhibited in Fayetteville, Bentonville and Little Rock, Arkansas, and Vienna, Austria and Berlin, Germany.

I was inspired at a young age by Belgian comic books and heavily influenced by my grandfather, Zamenga Batukezanga, one of the foremost novelists of the Congo in the 20th century. The emblematic connection/divergence between my African roots and my African-American experiences is the thoroughfare on which I am currently exploring. I try to capture this using a bold strong selection of color with emphasis on posture and form. Painting and drawing my own interpretation of this heritage and the world around me has always been my passion.
