Joe Graham is a Lecturer in Drawing at Falmouth School of Art, Falmouth University. He is an artist who writes about drawing and conducts research through drawing using various propositions drawn from phenomenology and ontology. His interests revolve around understanding how drawing operates as both a vehicle for expression and a mode of thought. Joe graduated from Loughborough University with a practice-led PhD in Drawing Research, prior to which he attended the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, graduating with an MFA in Fine Art Media. He has exhibited his work both nationally and internationally, and has published essays and peer reviewed articles in a number of journals, including The Journal of Visual Art Practice (JVAP), the Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) and Drawing: Research, Theory, Practice (DRTP). He has currently published two books on drawing – Flea, published by the Centre for Recent Drawing, and Anchor, published by Marmalade Publishers of Visual Theory. In 2010 he was awarded the Henry Tonks Drawing Prize from UCL.
