Man In Rain’s title is appropriately given; the painting features a portrait of a man from his shoulders up. He stares at us, or something past us, from a dark fog and yet that is not the only mysterious influence within this painting. It looks as if our vision is blurred, as if we, too, are stuck in a rainfall with the stranger, the air and space between us obscured by a heavy storm. It affects us in a way that is mysterious, intriguing and strangely expressive, yet realistic.


Joseph Christiana is an artist who exposes his view of the world in every painting that he produces. His paintings range all across the spectrum in terms of style, creating a portfolio of paintings that are every bit as unique and as versatile as the life that he is capturing on canvas. Joseph Christiana uses a broad range of colors that all depend on the scene it is that he is painting. When he is painting fields, marshes or bodies of water, which he often likes to do, he typically sticks to traditional and natural colors such as greens, blues, browns and golden yellows.
