Joel Max Elkin is a Montreal-born artist with more than sixty years of experience in the fine arts. His passion for visual arts began at the age of four after visiting the Musée des beaux arts in Montreal.
His time studying Studio Art at Concordia University led him to an important artistic influencer, Québec artist Luc Bélanger, who inspired him to be more open, dynamic and expressive with his painting. Joel Max’s unique artistic style, notably his use of explosive colour and fluidity, is rooted in curiosity, exploration, spirituality and interpretation.
His Global Expressions collection pays homage to celebrating performing artists and the creative spirit.
