Joshua Daniels' Early Career and Style
Born in Kent, England, in 1991, Joshua graduated from the University of Kent in 2013 with a degree in Fine Art and Art History. The artist has a passion for the forms, textures, and colours of nature. His father was a geologist who kept exotic animals, reptiles and fish, opening the young artists' eyes to the wonders of the natural world – a fundamental focus throughout his works. His highly distinguished mixed-media pieces stand out for their sparsely filled landscapes. Joshua plays with large blocks of colour and raw canvas space, alluding to something beyond the undefined or empty space.
He has exhibited work in numerous group exhibitions in London and the Southeast of England, where Joshua currently lives and works. Previous independent art shows include Let Them Eat Steak, CNB Gallery, Shoreditch, London (2015) and Profesh, The Gallery on the Corner, Battersea, London (2014).
