Joseph Abbati has lived in San Francisco for forty years. His artwork is multi-disciplinary and autobiographical. He has curated seven exhibits for Senator Scott Wiener’s office in the State of California Building on subjects relating to housing, night life, LGBTQ Pride, the Global Action Climate Summit, and the Asian diaspora. Joseph’s paintings are graphic documents about the world he observes. His “Linemen” series started out from contour line sketches he was making inspired by Instagram influencers. The loopy-lined figures of young male posers represent the swag, attitude, and stance of these would-be influencers. Seen here, they become an artistic expression of social media’s obsession with self.
