Joe Coleman is a famous Painter, who was born on November 22, 1955 in United States. Known for his highly detailed portraits of film stars, high-profile criminals, and others, Coleman also had a career as a performance artist, acting in a 1992 art film titled Black Hearts Bleed Red and in a 2003 movie titled Scarlet Diva. According to Astrologers, Joe Coleman's zodiac sign is Sagittarius.

When police and fireman arrived on the scene, they arrested Coleman, Pivar and BF/VF manager, Jeri Rossi. Coleman was charged under an arcane statute, which had not been used since the 1800s, citing him for “possession of an infernal machine”. He was fined $5000 for possessing and exploding fireworks and a further $300 for eating mice. The terms of his probation stipulated that he “not eat any Massachusetts mice for a year”.

He grew up in Norwalk, Connecticut. His father served in World War II, and his maternal grandfather was a professional boxer.

Joseph Coleman (born November 22, 1955) is an American painter, illustrator actor and performance artist. He has been described as the “walking ghost of Old America” by his wife, photographer Whitney Ward, for his over-riding interest in the historical arcana and personae that often populate his paintings. Of Coleman’s work, the New York Times wrote that, “If P. T. Barnum had hired Breughel or Bosch to paint sideshow banners, they might have resembled the art of Joe Coleman.” While Berlin’s Tagesspiegel said of Coleman, “Like [George] Grosz in the 1920s, he holds a drastic mirror up to his own times.”

Professor Mombooze-o, who was depicted in a 1986 painting, would appear in performance spaces in NY’s Lower East Side and, while ranting as a madman preacher, would bite the heads off of live mice and explode on stage.

His work has been compared to that of the fifteenth-century Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch.

In 1973, at 18, he moved to New York and supported himself by driving a cab. “Times Square was a red light district,” said Coleman. “I was a taxi driver back then, like Travis Bickle, but the stuff I saw in my taxi was way worse than that movie.” The street life he saw behind the wheel bled into his paintings and artwork from this period, which he described as ‘human-scapes’.

He attended the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York for two years. While at SVA he started performing with punk band The Steel Tips, who were immortalized in an early 1979 painting, styled as a sideshow banner. The Steel Tips played at CBGB, as well as in strip clubs, a prison, an insane asylum, and a benefit for female alcoholics held in a church.

In 1982, Coleman self-published a full-length comic book, The Mystery of Wolverine Woo-Bait.

The first exhibitions of Coleman’s paintings were held at Lower East Side and Soho art galleries, Wooster, Chronocide, Limbo and Civilian Warfare, in 1986 and 1987. Chronocide’s Bob Behrens would become Coleman’s first dealer. Victoria and Albert Museum curator David Owsley, whom Coleman had met after picking him up his cab, bought a piece from one of his shows at Chronicide and hung it next to a Breughel in his collection. Owsley would also introduce Coleman to Mickey Cartin, who became the biggest collector of his work and convinced him to stop driving a cab and devote himself to painting full-time. In the late ’80s and early ‘90s, Coleman had solo shows at Psychedelic Solution in Greenwich Village and Billy Shire’s gallery, La Luz de Jesus, on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. His first European show was held in 1998 at London’s The Horse Hospital, formerly a Victorian-era stable to house the sick horses of cab drivers.

He has also appeared in a number of documentaries, including films about two subjects of his paintings, Albert Fish and Carl Panzram. A performance by Professor Mombooze-o was featured in Harvey Nikolai Keith’s 1988 documentary Mondo New York, about the NYC underground art and music scene. The film also featured Lydia Lunch, Phoebe Legere, Ann Magnuson, Emilio Cubeiro and Joey Arias.
