Joshua Persichetti

Bio
Joshua's interest in Art has evolved as a young Montessori student in Connecticut to a college graduate with honors in New Jersey. Joshua's favorite style of art is using expressive strokes and limited color palettes to create unique impressionistic works on boards and canvas. He prides on using a restrictive palette to provoke a greater color harmony. His natural abilities to interpret life through music, design, poetry, and ultimately painting led Joshua on a creative path that explored all these elements through his art.

Since 1991, Joshua's commitment to artistic expression has led to over 20 solo and group exhibitions in New York City, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and New Mexico. In 2006, Joshua relocated to Santa Fe which had an immediate profound effect on his life and art. In 2007, Joshua participated in the GoFest outdoor fair in Albuquerque, NM. In 2008, Joshua's art was exhibited in Santa Fe's City Hall, and most recently was commissioned to do his first mural on a Santa Fe couryard wall.
