Born in a provincial British seaside town Josh McKenna is now based in London. Josh’s work is minimally designed but full of voluptuously, curved characters, his work focuses less on the details and more on asymmetric shapes in pleasing compositions using a soft west coast inspired palette. Tan lines and bodacious booties are rife in his portfolio but this fun, cheeky approach gives Josh’s stylised worlds personality.
McKenna’s creative process involves sketching ideas on iPad and Pencil, chopping and changing compositions and then moving to a computer to create vector artwork, adding textures and applying a carefully considered colour palette.
Josh McKenna graduated Falmouth University in 2014 and now works in editorial, advertising, shop windows and emojis on phones.
