JOYCE 
PENSATO

1941 - 2019

Joyce Pensato (American, born 1941 in Brooklyn) is a contemporary painter, known for her large-scale cartoon canvases on black-and-white enamel. Her father, an engraver, encouraged her to pursue art studies. She studied at the New York Studio School, where she developed an interest in pop culture elements, starting with Batman. This served as a catalyst for her project of splashy canvases depicting well-known characters and mascots, such as Homer Simpson, Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse.
