Urban Mythology

about Josh Keyes

There have been many attempts to imagine the extreme effects of our invasion of the planet. Among these, the one of Josh Keyes is definitely the most satirical look, though not without a concern for our time and an Earth’s future without any more human trace. His style is reminiscent of the diagrammatic vocabulary found in scientific textbook illustrations that often express, through a detached and clinical viewpoint, an empirical representation of the natural world. Assembled into this virtual stage set, there are references to contemporary events along with images and themes from his personal mythology.

Born in Tacoma, Washington, Josh received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and an MFA from Yale University School of Art. He has exhibited his work nationally and internationally and has work in private and public collections. He currently lives and works in Portland Oregon with his wife Lisa Ericson and daughter.
