Joshua Horkey is a South Florida-based Mixed Media Artist who currently focuses on acrylics and collage. He works primarily on wood panels and reclaimed materials. Drawing from his education and professional experience in fashion and graphic design, Horkey creates strikingly colorful compositions of layered text, collage, patterns, and imagery.

His color palettes are inspired by contemporary fashion collections and juxtaposed with postwar american advertisements or ubiquitous consumerist ephemera  

By employing historical and contemporary ephemera, Horkey aims to create an archival dialog with the viewer. His Artwork is intended to serve as both personal and social anthropology. As these time related themes waver through our collective culture, Horkey hopes that each sitting with his work creates a different evaluation.

His work has been featured at Mesa Contemporary Art Museum in Mesa, Arizona and is in the permanent collection of The Moleskine Foundation in Milan, Italy. Horkey’s Exhibitions also include; a solo show at Big Arts on Sanibel Island, Florida, several Art Miami events, and consistently participating in group shows across the US and Internationally.
