From the onset of his artistic career, Joe developed his own unique style. 

Marty Recalls …

I have fond memories of Uncle Joe and the weekends spent underneath the shade provided by the overhanging branches of the great big old Oak tree in the front of his yard. His modest home in Orlando, Soweto was built with unpainted red baked clay bricks, and was one of the original homes built by the apartheid government in the late 1940s as they began enforcing their ideology of seperate racial development upon South Africa’s population. It was as modest home, homely and comforting as its owner, Uncle Joe, with whom there was always place for one more weary brother, which he would welcome in from the dusty township streets, cold black label beer in hand to quench the thirst … Thats was Uncle Joe for you.
