When asked about his work Joshua responded;
“Storytelling is a manner in which to explore the self, and empathize with others. The stories I create are meant to be honest and entertaining, as I pull from personal life to construct symbolically heavy scenes. Much like a ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ book, I want the viewer to have an active role in establishing the chronology and meaning of each story.”
Joshua received his MFA from Louisiana Tech, and his prints and paintings have been featured in national and international exhibitions and collections, as well as appearing in publications of New American Paintings, Studio Visit Magazine, and Creative Quarterly. He is currently the Curator of Education and Public Programs at the Masur Museum of Art in Monroe.
