Joseph Cavalieri is a native New Yorker, currently based in the East Village of Manhattan. He has two careers: an artist and educator. Since 1997 Joseph has been exhibiting painted, air brushed and silk-screened stained glass. His subjects range from portraits of Jackie O, Queen Elizabeth II, Bill Pearl (Mr. Universe), The Lady Bunny and Isaac Hayes.
In 2013 Joseph had four one-man shows including The Society of Arts and Crafts (Boston), Duncan McClellan Gallery (Florida), Theater for the New City Gallery (NYC) and twice at Dixon Place (NYC). He also was part of a two-person exhibit at TS Art Projects (Berlin).
Cavalieri was selected to exhibit in the "NYC Makers: The MAD Biennial" at the Museum of Arts and Designin 2014. Also at MAD, “Madonna & Prada” was acquired for the permanent collection in 2013. Joseph’s MTA Arts for Transit public art commission can be viewed at the Philipse Manor Train Station in Westchester, New York.
Cavalieri’s unique glass art techniques combine modern elements with time-honored processes used by Medieval stained glass artists.
