Josh Keyes Explores the Effects of Humanity Through Art


 Josh Keyes is a talented artist based out of Portland, Oregon.  Keyes received his BFA in 1992 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA in 1998 from Yale University School of Art.  His art now consists of some bizarre yet very intriguing imagery.  He explores the relationship between nature and the effects of humankind on the Earth.  Most of the imagery contains animals mixed with urban and graffiti themed images. Some of his pieces even depict what seems to be sad "post-apocalypse" type scenes.  But, as we know, every piece of art can be interpreted in many different ways; so I'll stop writing and let you check out some of his pieces for yourself!
