“The best wave is the one you are on.”

Josh Barnes is a graphic artist based in Hermosa Beach. He often pays homage to this coastal city and the California beach lifestyle in his work, featuring crashing waves, surfboards, and palm trees. Born in Saint Louis Obispo, Josh also finds inspiration in everyday objects, and enjoys using a wide variety of media for his artwork. Transitioning from spray cans on skateboards to the more conventional canvas, Josh is a multi-talented artist who also works as a custom framer, screen printer and graphic designer. His pieces feature detailed line work and intricate layering, bold colors, and a sense of dark, dreamy whimsy.
