Joshua Coffy

San Francisco, CA - United States

Description

Joshua Coffy is a self-taught artist living and working in San Francisco. He grew up in a variety of locales from Ohio to New Mexico to Florida and finally California. Moving from one region to another helped to shape his cultural views of the world as well as inspire him to create art in unique and varied ways. Coffy draws inspiration for his mixed media paintings from the natural world, scientific illustrations and his love of animals. Josh’s work includes many layers of textures including paper patterns, maps, newspaper articles, and acrylic paint. Much of his work deals with animals and how humans relate to the birds and mammals all around us. His work is usually a lighthearted and whimsical approach to our ideals about animals. He has created a sense of symbolism and meaning with many of the images he paints. Illustrating the conversation between man and beast with a wink and stillness for you to make your own decisions about what the image is saying.

Artist statement

I grew up with a healthy respect for animals. I was always hiking, hunting, or fishing in rural Ohio. My family then moved around a lot and I was fortunate enough to spend a lot of time outdoors in New Mexico and Florida. All of this adventure has definitely inspired me to make this art. I like saying things with animals and connecting with them in new ways.
