Joe Maibach is an award-winning, self-taught artist based in Warrenton, Virginia, USA.
Joe Maibach grew up in rural Virginia, having taken only art classes in grade school as part of extracurricular programs.
After a five-and-a-half-year commitment to the US Navy, he left the service to reenter civilian life. It was then that he rediscovered his knack for the visual arts, teaching himself to paint and to replicate the world around him through that media.
He lives with his husband and dog in Warrenton, VA.
Joe won Best in Show in Fusion Art’s 8th Annual Waterscapes Art Exhibition in August 2023.

In my painting, “Venetian Canal”, I aim to capture the essence of Venice and a leisurely gondola ride through its mesmerizing canals. Using layers of acrylic paint, I invite viewers to immerse themselves in the romantic atmosphere that Venice is renowned for. The painting portrays a gondola gliding gracefully through the labyrinth of waterways, guided by a skillful gondolier dressed in traditional attire. Through the manipulation of light and shadow, I seek to recreate the enchanting reflections cast upon the water’s surface, and to replicate the refraction of sunlight caused by a rowing oar’s stroke.
