Joe Overstreet: Light in Darkness
Joe Overstreet was born in Conehatta, Mississippi, in 1933. He spent his teenage years in California, where he studied art at various institutions, worked as a merchant seaman, and became an early beatnik. As a veteran abstract expressionist, he says the music has helped to keep him alive and its influence has, at times, drawn him back toward a more figurative art, notably with outstanding canvases such as Strange Fruit and his Storyville Series. The author interviewed Joe Overstreet on two occasions. The first was in October 2003 in his studio at Kenkeleba House, on New York's Lower East Side. The second interview was in April 2004.
