About

Born: 1985, New York, USA

Location: California, USA

Education: 2002-2006 BSCS of Computer Science and Design

Profession: Web and Graphic Designer/Illustrator with over 15 years of experience.

The Filipino-American Illustrator, Joseph Catimbang is a full-time Graphic Designer based in OC, California. For the most part, he is a self-taught artist, by day, he works in a corporate company. By night, Joseph takes on personal collaborations and contracted projects reflecting his utmost passions, in a variety of traditional and digital media for a variety of exceptional clientele.

He uses pencils, black pens and even digital tools to create his minimalistic stunning drawings, evoking motion with incredible detail to emphasize the natural world around us, and everything in it. By combining two or more subjects in to one, his work becomes something that may have been from a dream.

Joseph’s lifelong interest in the metaphysical, the surreal and nostalgic memories are a heavy influence in the creation of his art. He has a strong grasp for both the abstract and the surreal in his life and art.
