Joe Lafone was inspired to enter the art world after seeing the movie, Lust for Life
, documenting the life of Vincent Van Gogh. Born in Hickory, North Carolina, Lafone has lived and worked throughout the United States - from the Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco, to Greenwich Village in New York. He returned to North Carolina and began painting in 1997, after God spoke to him in a dream.
Joe Lafone's paintings have been exhibited at the Blowing Rock Art & History Museum and the Hickory Museum of Art.
