 Titus: Makeup artist

"My name is Joseph Titus I am an Atlanta, Georgia based makeup artist and body paint artist. I have been using this creative expression as my main profession for a little over eight years. As an artist I draw creative inspiration from all over the place. However when body painting I pull inspiration directly from the model. I like to spend time getting to know my model, I like to ask questions like favorite color, spirit animal, and life hardships. Questions like these not only break the ice but help to make the experience more personal and in turn the body paint is something that represents the models life and experience. Throughout the duration of my career I have held body painting titles such as Gwynnis Mosby Makeup Academy Body Paint 1st and 2nd place winner. As well as being assistant to Roberto Hernandez and Stephanie Anderson for Living Art America North American body painting competition. I have also worked on many movie sets and TV shows such as Syfy Network, Netflix Black Lightning, Bet Bigger, and Warner Brothers "Nice Guys". I have also used my creative artist tree to embark on a philanthropy journey partnering with positive impact Healthcare centers to use art as mental health care for people struggling with HIV and AIDS. As of now I plan on continuing to grow my business  ARTitus13LLC that I opened in 2017. I plan on working with amazing people and sharing my gifts of Art"
