Joshua Clay was born on a cloudy February day in 1983. He is a fine artist in the purest sense of the word, seeking perfection in every aspect of his craft without the use of computers, stencils or projectors. The work that Clay creates some would label Illustrative, Lowbrow or even as Pop Surrealism, but to him, it’s his voice in its purest form, untainted by established expectations of what “Fine Art” should look like.
These days Clay spends his time tucked away in his Chicago studio drawing, painting, and perfecting his craft. With three successful solo exhibits and dozens of group exhibits under his belt, Clay has been busy making quite a name for himself. In addition to having his work featured in several books and magazines in recent years, Clay was also recently commissioned to create the album artwork for the highly anticipated new Gym Class Heroes album, “The Quilt”.
