Joe Ceballos was born and raised in Los Angeles. After earning his degree from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, he moved to San Francisco to work as a matte painter at Lucasfilm's Industrial Light and Magic, digitally creating realistic environments for film. He is now an art director at Whiskytree and has worked on nearly two dozen films, including multiple Marvel blockbusters.
Just as his love of fine art has helped inform his work in film, his experience in the entertainment industry has helped develop his visual sense and the story-telling qualities of his paintings.
He strives to capture the ethereal qualities present in daily life: the cities we live in, the places we visit, the people we encounter. He has a strong interest in combining contemporary compositions and ideas with a foundation grounded in traditional technique.
