Joe Muczka jr. was born into a family with a long artistic tradition. His grandfather was a painter, so Joe came into contact with painting and art as a very young boy.
Joe loved to paint and it was his dream to become a professional artist and to create paintings that people would seek out and that would be exhibited worldwide on his own art openings.

Joe grabbed the paintbrush for the first time in his grandfather’s atelier and began to mix the oil paints and apply them to the canvas. Mixing oil paints on the pallet, their scents and painting with a brush fascinated him from childhood.
