About Joseph


Joseph Loughborough earned a BA in Illustration and Philosophy from the University of Portsmouth. He spent his formative years exploring the derelict boatyards and creeks of Portsmouth, on the south coast of the UK. After graduating he pursued interests in art, philosophy and skateboarding culture, living in London, Paris before finally settling down in Berlin.

Joseph’s impulsive and intuitive rapid-fire mark making centers on honesty, expressionism and possibly exorcism. The result is an attempt to grasp a comprehension of the human condition. Drawing inspiration from various themes concerned with Camus/Kierkegaard’s notion of ‘Absurdity’, each drawing becomes story pursuing a standing point within the concept.

Who were all these people before, do you think? what were they before they were faded faces of a memory?

Such a defined style, love the different mediums used and the glimpses into the artist's perception of his surroundings and how they refract, echo and find their new form on the canvas.







CRAZYY CHARCOAL ART! Visited the artist website, and saw a few pieces that really caught my eye. The distinctive use of charcoal creates an amazing effect. :)

All of his charcoal and gold works have made me just look, seeing more with each glance, holding my attention, allowing me ddiscover more. Few but the great can do that for me.
