From all of the comments he received aboard that ship, Joe was inspired from that moment on. Little did he know at the time that his ‘fun past time’ would one day see him travel the length of Australia turning heads at every function he performed at.
Better known by his signature tag Zapp, he has painted many of the biggest names in sport and the community. With over 800 paintings to his name, Zapp continues to push the boundaries of traditional portraiture in search of excellence.
Along his journey as an artist, he began to do what no other artist had done and that is he began to provide his audience with a collage of portraits capturing an amazing likeness of the subject and adding the subject in action offering an exceptional original every time.
What’s even more amazing is the speed at which Zapp paints, this incredible ability is the reason he is considered the best speed artist in Australia.
When asked how he does it, Zapp simply say’s: “I see it and it just happens.”
True to his word, this is exactly how it is. From a blank canvas at the start, Zapp astounds audiences with his ability and extraordinary talent to transform the ‘nothingness’ into a masterpiece in around 40 minutes. All the while taking the audience on an amazing journey as he creates these amazing ‘works of art’ from ‘thin air’.
Zapp leaves a lasting impression which is why he is in such high demand for corporate functions around Australia. His ability to share his gift and inspire those he comes in contact with is truly amazing.
