Joshua Charles Hart is an American artist whose illustrative style continues to evolve with the incorporation of painterly techniques of acrylic washes where colors and figures are blended into vivid and often surreal depictions of personal visions and intricate words and poems seamlessly integrated into the work.

Hart was born in 1979 and grew up in Santa Maria, CA. He attended Otis College of Art and Design and was awarded “Best in Show” in 2004 for illustration.

He creates his paintings at home in West Hollywood in his studio named after his mother “Studio Lucille”. His best friend was his pug named Jinx and finds his ultimate pride and joy in his young family, wife Alexandra, children Mia, and Milo.

Hart’s body of work has always imbued a deep sense of tender emotion with characters and themes that seamlessly integrate both haunting expression and ironic truth. Hart continues to push his own creative limits. From his head to his heart, through his hand to a wood panel, we see first-hand in Hart’s work, the power of finding your voice.
