Joshua Gage was born in 1980 in Lexington, Kentucky. A persistent interest in the arts led Gage to pursue painting, specifically in the Abstract Expressionist genre. The artist considers color and composition central elements in painting. His extensive travels to foreign countries, such as Japan, Spain and Morocco have introduced new palettes and forms of expression. Currently living in New York, Gage believes the city remains the art hub of the world.
Gage produces gritty, urban paintings, which allude to contemporary popular influences, from graffiti scrawl to graphic novels. His emphasis on these surroundings is evident in the use of monochromatic earth tones livened with neon colors. Gage is an artist also pursuing the field of international politics through journalism.
“Every painting is a landscape.” - Joshua Gage
