Satanic Gentleman, Decadent Host, Macabre Visionary and all around Raconteur.
Mixing a love for the finer darker things in life with an insatiable need to recreate the world in his image, Joe Netherworld sets out to change the way things are one party or project at a time. Years of working in all matters of visual arts have put him in partnership with the elite of their fields from Music to Movies and Fashion. Mix that with a love a love of good olde fashioned decadent nightlife and you get someone who REALLY knows how to throw a party. A glass of Absinthe in one hand , a salacious or cutting remark on his lips and an army of Dark Beauties by his side is how you’ll find him.
Though I prefer to let my work do the talking a few choice words should set the tone. I am a Visual Artist, Designer, Writer, Psychic, Mixologist, Raconteur, and all around Entrepreneur. I have always enjoyed recreating the world around me and implementing my rather Dark and Beautiful aesthetic. Over the years I have spawned a few companies and partnerships (Netherworld inc, Cocktail Vultures, The Perfect Sugar Company) and have worked with Rockshots, David La Chapelle, 20th Century Fox, Art Asylum, Sony Music, Sin Studios, Last Rites Paul Booth, Jagermeister Music-Slayer Tour. I have Photographed bands and artists: Penthouse Publications, Biohazard, Suicide City, The Mirror Reveals, Voltaire, The Toilet Boys. Created and Hosted events for Pacha, Limelight, The Ritz, Webster Hall. I am one of the highest rated psychics working online and in person and partnered with the late Shawn Poirier, the Witch King of Salem for private events for Fortune 50 companies. My earliest and greatest influence was Vincent Price both his onscreen persona and how he lived his life fully immersed in all that he loved. I always viewed him as always playing himself that every dark wonderful Poe character was Vincent Price only even more amplified by all his talk show and TV appearances, There he was the elegant macabre Gentleman full of life and style and it imprinted on me at an early age that I could live completely in a world of my own making. Add to that knowing I was a bit strange from the get go I felt truly empowered by this man. My art has always been about creating a total environment of making things that affect the world around you. In recent years I have come to find an affinity with Martha Stewart another self-created individual with a sense of style and purpose and the strength to make it happen. It is why when I am not calling myself “America’s Favorite Satanist” I refer to myself as the Bastard Love-child of Vincent Price and Martha Stewart.
