Joe Nyiri arrived in San Diego in 1962 armed with degrees in art and education from the University of Wisconsin. He quickly made a name for himself in the local art scene as he created Modernist inventive sculptures incorporating automobile bumpers, pipes and other found metal objects. Joe quickly earned a reputation as one of the area’s top sculptors. He also held a position of teacher-art consultant with the San Diego Unified School District and was an art instructor at the San Diego Zoo. Nyiri is comfortable with a variety of media including painting, airbrush and printmaking and has exhibited with the Allied Craftsman for over 40 years.

Please join Sophie’s Kensington Gallery & Kensington Gallery as we welcome local artist Joe Nyiri.

Come meet the artist at our collaborative public reception Saturday, March 1 from 5-8 PM.
