Joe Roberts grew up in in Madison, Wisconsin. Comic books made up the bulk of his childhood reading material, and their influence persists in his current work. Joe attended San Francisco Art Institute, where he claims he mainly learned about drugs. Through the use of crayons, paper and found objects, his work creates a world of cartoon imagery laced with personal symbology and humor. Joe currently lives and works in San Francisco, California. Most recently he had a solo exhibition titled, Planet Dare at Reyes Projects in Birmingham, MI.
