Joan Emanuelli Sanchez is a Contemporary Realism Artist from San Juan, Puerto Rico, now residing in Orlando, Florida.
His distinctive personal style emanates from passion and emotion, which portrays numerous perspectives on various subjects in oils, bringing to life, scenic landscapes, interior scenes, portraits, still life, and everyday people. Much of his subject reveals a deep contrast of harmonious colors and bold compositions. With the artist’s interpretation, he welcomes his viewers into his personal visual journey.
He was a student at Crealdé School of Art, Winter Park, Florida (2016 to 2020), where he was later granted a Fellowship in the Painting and Drawing Department (P&D). In January 2019, he was selected as a Studio Artist in the same department. He completed an Associate in Arts with a Pre-Major in Fine Arts at Valencia College in 2021.
The Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens Emerging Artist Program selected him as the first Emerging Artist for the Winter Park Paint Out 2018. In 2016, he was awarded 1st place in the 35th Juried Student Exhibition at Crealdé School of Art in the Painting & Drawing category. He has participated in various exhibitions such as “Tapestry – Americas United” at Banco de Brasil, “Emerge” at the Showalter Hughes Community Gallery, and “Evolving Identities,” Keepers of Heritage, at the Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Gardens, a collective art show of Puerto Rican Artists. Also, he has been part of the NOAPS International Exhibition Spring Exhibit in 2021. His first individual exhibition was presented at New Concept Gallery in Orlando, FL, with great acceptance from the public in 2021.
His spirit and dedication have taken him on a beautiful journey in which he is submerged.
