ABOUT:

JOSH AUDISS IS A VISUAL ARTIST ROOTED IN OMAHA NEBRASKA. HIS DRAWINGS AND PAINTINGS ARE LARGELY INSPIRED BY THE MYRIAD OF MANIFESTATIONS IN THE NATURAL WORLD. HE ALSO DERIVES INFLUENCE FROM ART NOUVEAU, LATE 1800'S/EARLY 1900'S STORYBOOK ILLUSTRATION, TRADITIONAL RELIGIOUS ART OF THE EAST AND WEST, NATURE ILLUSTRATION, AND MIDIEVAL ALCHEMICAL  AND MYSTICAL MOTIFS.

THOUGH CREATING PRIMARILY FOR THE SIMPLE SAKE OF BEAUTY AND ENJOYMENT, JOSH AT TIMES WIELDS HIS SKILL TO CONVEY DEPTHS OF MEANING THROUGH VISUAL ALLEGORICAL STORY TELLING. HIS BIOMORPHIC STYLINGS LOVINGLY HONOR THE OVERALL GRACE OF THE ORGANIC REALM WHILE PAYING HOMAGE TO THE ORNAMENTAL RELICS OF A BYGONE ERA.

BESIDES REGULARLY CHIPPING AWAY AT PERSONAL AND COMMISIONED PROJECTS, JOSH IS HEAVILY INVOLVED DESIGNING APPAREL FOR ARTIST DRIVEN COMPANY "CURBSIDE CLOTHING". WHEN NOT SECLUDED IN THE STUDIO, JOSH HITS THE ROAD TO EXIBIT HIS ART BEFORE ENERGETIC CROwDS AT U.S. MUSIC AND ART FESTIVALS.
