A Californian to the core, Josh Barnes 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.
Josh is an active painter and muralist around Los Angeles, and has done murals for companies like Red Bull.
Some Of The Companies We And Our Artists Have Worked With:
Returns: We are not able to accept returns. All sales are final. In the case of damage during shipment, we will replace the artwork.
Color calibration: Our cameras, monitors and printers are all carefully color calibrated to produce consistent and accurate colors. However, your individual monitor on your desktop, laptop or phone may not be calibrated to these same exacting standards (e.g. phone displays are typically extra bright and oversaturated and are rarely re-calibrated by users), so as a result, the actual artwork may look slightly different than what you're seeing on your display at present, due to this difference in calibration.
Frame: This piece was framed by the artist, and the frame may be made from different moulding than is featured elsewhere on the website where we describe the frames used for our photographs.
