About the Artist

Joe Turner started drawing in the first grade, but the Birmingham, Alabama-based artist and designer would never have imagined that he would become an artist. That possibility only unfolded the summer after he graduated from high school, when his alma mater commissioned a series of his paintings. in recognition of his talents. After winning “Best in Show” at a local art exhibition, Turner’s work has continued to gain even more traction, bringing his pieces to the walls of Design Supply, a local gallery where his abstract paintings continue to garner the spotlight. Despite his hefty academic load as a BFA candidate in Interior Design at Samford University, Turner is devoted to creating works of art that are deeply expressive, authentic, and sophisticated.

Soon, faculty members at Samford were asking him to dream up bespoke pieces for their homes. Encouraged by the enthusiasm for his works, Turner started an Instagram account that captivated an even wider audience. Notably, Turner was featured in Architectural Digest as part of their series on the iconic home, and in LUXE Interiors + Design for their July 2022 issue. With rapidly growing demand for his unique pieces in galleries and stores across the nation, Joe Turner is currently represented by Atchison Home (Mobile, AL), Buckhead Art Company (Atlanta, GA), Chairish, Maison (Mountain Brook, AL), Modern Remains (Nashville, TN), Paloma & Co. (Houston, TX), and Summer Story (Alys Beach, FL).
