Josh Hogan is a Pittsburgh artist and co-owner of Boxheart Gallery in Bloomfield. He attended Carlow University and began a series of paintings influenced by his opportunities to travel to over 15 different countries, including Egypt, Vietnam, Turkey and Morocco. These travel experiences laid the foundation for the fluid shapes he creates today; a way to visually communicate his own interactions with people as well as the interactions he observes between people.
“The shapes in my paintings interact and communicate with each other. I intend for these shapes — my ‘wayfarers’ — to illuminate how every choice and action we make affects other people.”
Since opening Boxheart Gallery in 2001, Josh has exhibited hundreds of regional, national, and international artists while maintaining his own art studio. His paintings have shown nationally including exhibitions in the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Westmoreland Museum of Art, and Fallingwater’s Huntington Museum as well as internationally in the Love Art Fair in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. His paintings have appeared in several film productions including Bloodlines (TV Series), The Perks of Being a Wall Flower (Feature Film), and Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl (Feature Film). His paintings were recently exhibited at The Affordable Art Fair in New York City, Superfine! Art Fair in Washington DC, Aqua Art Miami Beach, and LA Art Show.
