Joel Schreck, aka, Dr. Shen, combines painting with digital media to create images that can't be easily rendered by hand.
As a teenager Joel studied painting with Polish artist Leo Cizes and later, at New York’s Art Students League.
In 1968, Joel and his wife Betty founded Exposure Gallery on New York’s lower East side. During the 1960’s, he exhibited his work there and at other East Coast galleries.The New York Times photography critic described him as a technical master. You can find examples of this work from the 1960s here.
In 1970 Joel and Betty moved to California. Impressed by the amazing flora of California they began crafting Oshibana, pictures made with pressed flowers. In the 1970’s, their Wilderness Cards and Flower Art were sold at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and scores of galleries throughout coastal California.
In 1985 Joel began working in digital media. Where once he painted with colors, he could now paint with images. Today his work combines photography, and painting with digital art.
