Josh George


About the Artists:

Josh had a big change of heart and he’s putting it all in his work.

Josh’s unique mixed media cityscapes and portraiture have a staggering amount of detail to them. His art has taken him all over the country and even many shows to Italy and all the reviews say the same thing; his work is imaginative, theatrical, and very VERY human. It is truly amazing how Josh takes everyday moments and makes them grand somehow like drinking coffee or taking a walk down a city street.  Starting with torn bits of maps, wall coverings, labels and other discarded bits of printed paper, he arranges his subjects and then comes back on top with paint very delicately to finish the work off.

Josh also has as much fun with titling his work as well as painting it.  With titles like, “Who Will Win the Peanut Butter Wars.” and, “The Wind Carried It In Its Belly, The City Nursed” you get a sense that Josh also probably has a pile of poems stashed somewhere that he has yet to reveal to the world.  Josh sees titling his work this way adds even more mystique making the mundane fantastical and vice versa as if a nude woman delicately balancing on her big toe on the corner of a skyscraper is just a Tuesday for the free spirited figure.
