About the Artist

Joshua Hogan was born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and received his BA from Carlow College (now Carlow University). While at Carlow, Hogan began a series of abstract paintings inspired by his participation in the program, Semester at Sea. This journey to 15 countries, including Egypt, Vietnam, Turkey and Morocco, laid the foundation for the fluid shapes he creates today; a way to visually communicate his own interactions with people as well as the interactions he observes between people. In 2007 his abstract paintings shifted from an earthy palette to a chromatic palette when color exploded onto his canvases. His paintings have shown nationally including exhibitions in the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Westmoreland Museum of Art, and Fallingwater as well as internationally in the Love Art Fair in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Hogan’s paintings have also appeared in several film productions including Bloodlines (TV Series), The Perks of Being a Wall Flower (Feature Film), and Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl (Feature Film). Recently, The Tower at PNC Plaza acquired several of his paintings for the corporate headquarters art collection. Hogan is currently working on paintings that will be exhibited this December at Aqua Art Miami during Art Basel in Miami Beach.
