This artwork constitutes the second exhibition for Joe Monteleone, a deafblind printmaker. Joe not only advocates for himself as a man with disability but wants to show the world, through his art practice, that people with Deaf-blindness can achieve anything they want to. Joe has a love of printmaking particularly because the tactile nature of this art form connects him physically to the artwork.

This large format print of the iconic, Flinders Street Station, depicts a central meeting point for deafblind community connection. It also is symbolic of Joe’s journey and growth as an artist. Joe never imagined the artistic destinations his Deafblind journey would lead to. The lino tiles for this artwork took approximately 800 hours and over 7 months to create.

It is Joe’s most ambitious project to date.

Joe Monteleone is a recent graduate of Box Hill Institute with a Diploma of Visual Arts. His work has been shown at Gasworks Arts Park 2021, Castlemaine Art Museum 2021 and in Linden Art Gallery’s Postcard Show 2020.

This exhibition is supported by the City of Melbourne arts grants.
