Pacific Coast Gallery is honored to represent Josh Barnes. A Californian to the core, Josh was born in Saint Luis Obispo, studied at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, and currently calls Hermosa Beach home.
He often pays homage to this coastal city and the California beach lifestyle in his work, featuring crashing waves, surfboards, and palm trees, but beyond the street-beach aesthetic, Josh wants his creative endeavors to project an uplifting message: Good Vibes Only.
Transitioning from spray-cans on skateboards to the more conventional canvas, Josh is a multi-talented artist who works as a muralist, screen printer and graphic designer. His distinctive style features detailed line work and intricate layering, bold colors, and a sense of dark, dreamy whimsy.
Josh also finds inspiration in the everyday, and strives to make each finished work relatable and relevant. Failing that, he hopes at least you'll crack a smile.
