About the Artist

Josh M. G. Yates is a New York City based painter who resides in Brooklyn and maintains a studio in Staten Island. Born and raised in the United Kingdom, he relocated to the United States in 2008 to pursue his fine art education, receiving a BFA in Painting from the Massachusetts College of Art & Design, and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts.

Josh renders esoteric phenomena and landscape imagery in abstracted layers of color, which are then mapped onto the canvas surface. He primarily utilizes acrylic, gesso and a selection of matte and gloss gel mediums; applied and then sanded. Also incorporated are drawn elements, transfers, and other mark making. Repetitive symbols are suspended, and intricate images often embedded onto the canvas surface.
