Artist of the Week

Josh Taylor
The world of art is constantly changing and reinventing itself as new artists and new consumers emerge. In recent years there has been a surge of highly trained illustrators making a name for themselves in realm of "serious" art. A perfect example of this is the art of Josh Taylor. Josh grew up in New Jersey, and received his Bachelor in Fine Arts from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. According to the bio on his website, he also died in the year 2037, and government spies have been monitoring his progress as an artist since the second grade. Anyway, Josh erases the line between illustrator and artist, and simply creates captivating pieces that will without question be viewed way beyond 2037.
Recently, Josh was kind enough to answer few questions for us:

Orange Alert (OA): How would you define your style of painting?
Josh Taylor (JT): Character based illustration that sometimes hangs on a wall.

OA: In the current world of art, what is the distinction between art and illustration, and how do you, (if you do) keep the two separate when you create?
JT: I don't think there is a distinction. Everything that I do is Illustration, whether I'm doing a book or a portrait, I'm always trying to tell a story.

OA: What is your definition of creativity?
JT: According to Wikipedia creativity is: "Creativity (or creativeness) is a mental process involving the generation of new ideas or concepts, or new associations between existing ideas or concepts." I agree.

OA: Do you listen to music when you paint? If yes, who are some your favorite musician to listen to? Does their music impact your painting in anyway?
JT: I usually have a tv on while I paint, nothing in particular, just background noise.

OA: Are there any upcoming projects or exhibitions that you would like to mention
JT: "The Horrifying Tale of the Tremendous Journey of Dingle Doppleganger" Mon. Feb. 19th • 7-10pm Maxwell's Hoboken, NJ
