Josh M. G. Yates

Born: Jersey, United Kingdom
Lives: New York City, New York

Josh M. G. Yates (b. 1989) is a British interdisciplinary artist living and working in New York City. In his work, Josh layers traditional and digital media utilizing canvas, paper, objects and video. He sources material from television, film, advertising, politics, and art historical canon. What often emerges is an anxiety-ridden relationship with institutions, public platforms, and the position of art in the twenty-first century.

Josh is currently pursuing an MFA in Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts.
