Artist Name: Joshua Nissen King
About Artist: Joshua Nissen King is a Bay Area painter. King studied Fine Art painting, drawing, and printmaking, with an emphasis in education at California State University, San Francisco. In exploring the detritus of our artificial world in relation to nature, his new work abandons figurative or realist formalities in favor of free mark-making alongside shapes and colors to create abstract tangles that retain a connection to familiar objects. Working primarily with oil paint, aerosol, masking techniques and acrylic underpainting, King approaches the substrate without sketching, with gestural underpainting and a free-form accumulation of marks. King has participated in programs such as the California Summer School of the Arts, and Oxbow, Napa Valley and has received such awards as the Martin Wong scholarship of the arts and the Mondavi Foundation Grant.
