Brief Summary
As an infant, artist Joshua Krause found great pleasure in picking up the tiny pieces of trash that littered his New York City block. Cigarette-butts, gum and broken bottles, the ephemera of his neighborhood streets would later become elements of Joshua's nervous collages. "I love working with the tiny fragments of peoples' lives, the things people leave behind." Each one of Joshua's works seems to be a smart and tender manifestation of varied personalities, a veritable mishmash of traits and visuals that create a single picture in their distinctive combination. Joshua draws from a fascination of popular culture, evolution, and myth and then adds something very personal to it. Using mainly acrylics and collage, his illustrations find their way onto a versatile array of surfaces: tattered book covers, wood, canvas and found objects. His evocative blend of text and illustration stem from a dual interest in both literature and design. But what seems more definitive to Joshua's art is his lack of formal training. Joshua's illustrations are serving editorial clients in advertising, television, magazines, newspapers and book publishing, as well as gracing retail showrooms, galleries, CD covers, clothing, skateboards and personal commissions.
