Josh Taylor was born in Ridgewood, NJ in 1980. He grew up in Warwick, NY and graduated from Pratt Institute with a degree in Illustration. His influences include Egon Schiele, Japanese woodcuts, Early American Illustration, Anime, Comics, Cartoons and Cheesy Horror flicks. After spending years wallowing in the muck of freelance illustration and newspaper graphic design, Taylor decided to try his hand at exhibiting his work in galleries. Currently residing near Tampa, FL, he has been exhibiting nationally for a little over a year and is loving every minute of it. Upcoming plans for Josh include a web comic and animation called Bird and Girl, limited edition hand made books and sketchbooks, and continuing exhibitions worldwide.
Josh Taylor exhibits his work extensively throughout the US and has been included in over 30 solo and group shows over the past two years.
