Joshua Coffy is a self-taught artist living and working in San Francisco.  He grew up in a variety of locales from Ohio to New Mexico to Florida and finally California.  Moving from one region to another helped to shape his cultural views of the world as well as inspire him to create art in  unique and varied ways.  Coffy draws inspiration for his mixed media paintings from the natural world, scientific illustrations and his love of animals.  Josh’s work includes many layers of textures including paper patterns, maps, newspaper articles, and acrylic paint.  Much of his work deals with animals and how humans relate to the birds and mammals all around us.  His work is usually a light-hearted and whimsical approach to our ideals about animals.  He has created a sense of symbolism and meaning with many of the images he paints.  Illustrating the conversation between man and beast with a wink and stillness for you to make your own decisions about what the image is saying.
Please join Joshua at his SF Open Studios.
