He mainly focuses on Portraitures having Eloy Morales, Robin Eley and Gottfried Helnwein as his inspirations.For several years now, Joshua had been thinking of ’look’ that he want for his paintings.
Even though it had been a struggle for him to look for his signature art style, he’s happy to finally have it early this year and start doing it.
”For me, a painting is more than a display on a wall or in an exhibit, it’s a visual figure of the artist expression of his thoughts about the world and society, a product of his imagination wanting to speak for himself and for the people of the world”, Joshua Villena is quoted.
