Josh is a dedicated painter who enjoys testing the boundaries of realism and abstraction. Born in Long Island, NY in the early 70′s and raised in Arizona, Connecticut and New Jersey, Josh’s early passion of art, music and popular culture shaped his unique outlook on life.
He went on to receive art and graphic design degrees, only to find out later that artists need more life experience than degrees. After years of “real jobs” and the recent economic status of our world, Josh reached a crossroads in his career and decided to pursue his first passion; painting.
His favorite style of art is expressive plein-air and alla prima (direct from life), using loose brushstrokes, tight composition and limited color palettes to create unique works of art. Inspired by Robert Henri, Anders Zorn, Nicoli Fechin and other Russian and French Impressionist painters, Josh’s paintings are filled with emotional content, haunting color schemes and palette knife techniques.
