Josh M.G. Yates is a Visual Artist currently living and working in New York City. In 2012 he acquired a BFA in Painting from the Massachusetts College of Art & Design, and subsequently an MA in Contemporary Art from Sotheby's Institute of Art in 2013. He is currently enrolled in the MFA Fine Arts program at the School of Visual Arts.
His current work is, at the core, an ode to drawn elements which he further manipulates both digitally and traditionally. Though his degree is in painting, he considers line work to be the strongest aspect of his practice, and the use of digital manipulation imparts a feeling of control that becomes a theme maintained throughout the rest of the creative process.
Yates has exhibited in both the USA and Europe, primarily New York, Boston, Denmark and London. His work is bought by commercial, hospitality and residential businesses and by private collectors.
