About Joëlle Storet

Belgian-born artist Joëlle Storet moved to the United States via Austria in 2001. She took inspiration from a young age from Belgian comic illustrations and the vast confluences of her Belgian-Congolese upbringing . She has since transmitted her Afro-European style and thematic expositions to the thriving artist community based in Northwest Arkansas. Storet graduated from the University of Arkansas with a background in Cultural Anthropology,  Linguistics and Art History. Her bold palette and multifarious interests have allowed her to communicate her history and community engagement through paintings, graphic design, clothing brands, murals, and a whole host of other mediums. She now considers Arkansas her home and has been happily living in NWA ever since.

The scope of my work evolved as the world changed before our eyes. Compassion and empathy seem more foreign now than ever before. Just as so many aspects of our lives have been, the works in this series portend the feelings, emotions, and aesthetics that have evolved in the context of a world wide pandemic.  Even the availability of paints and canvases diminished to such an extent that I was forced to improvise on color scheme, canvas size and mediums with my works. "Robin","Jazmin" and "The Ties That Bind" are born out of the vast changes and tumult that I, as well as most people, have experienced. My work also represent a hope to return to the vibrancy of the days that inspired "Justus Reception", "Figure Drawing", "The Ties That Bind" and "Au Marche". It is everything that we now take for granted and seems so far removed from the world we currently inhabit.
