Josh M. G. Yates is a British visual artist currently living and working in New York City. In 2012 he acquired a BFA in Painting from the Massachusetts College of Art & Design and an MA in Contemporary Art from Sotheby's Institute of Art in the fall of 2013. Yates's work is exhibited in both the USA and Europe, primarily New York City, Boston and London. He sells and licenses his work to businesses (commercial, hospitality, residential) and to private collectors.
His current work is, at the core, an ode to drawn elements which he further manipulates both digitally and traditionally. Though his degree is in painting, he considers line work to be the strongest aspect of his practice, and the use of digital manipulation imparts a feeling of control that becomes a theme maintained throughout the rest of the creative process.
