About Joshua Horkey
Joshua Horkey was born in Windom, Minnesota, in 1976 to creative parents that promoted his art skills throughout his youth.
In 1994, Joshua attended both the Fashion Institute of Fashion and Design in Los Angeles and Minneapolis College of Art and Design in Minneapolis in 1999 before settling in Southern California in 2001 to continue his career.
Horkey has drawn a great deal of experience in fashion, photography and graphic design, all of which have influenced the style of his artistic endeavors.
Currently, Joshua is using reclaimed materials as a surface in which to add multiple layers of imagery, type, and texture. Mixed mediums are used to create a background of intuitive meaning. Taking post war comic images out of context gives a sense of familiarity and homogeneity to the focal point. The particular themes involve introspection and the often polarizing feelings it induces.
With his diverse life experience, education, and professional acumen; Joshua Horkey is creating his art with an infinite curiosity and steady focus that will not let this opportunity pass him by.
Joshua currently works and lives with his family in southwest Florida.
