Joe Banda was born and raised in Bristol, Connecticut. After struggling through high school academically and socially, he eventually went on to study fine art and illustration at Delaware College of Art and Design and Montserrat College of Art earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art. During the ups and downs of college and a few failed career choices, Joe discovered his love for painting. Combining the tight rules of illustration with the loose nature of non-objective painting; Joe discovered a happy medium, where he could truly express himself. Joe now resides in Beverly, Massachusetts with his wife and daughter.
