It all started when Josh Byer was two years old and loved to draw on the walls. Back then, these walls were enough to show him his real passion: art. As a two-year old, walls may have been the most exciting to work on, but nowadays he has bigger goals. “I’d like to build bigger things. Frescos. A movie studio. An amusement park.” he told me when I asked him about future aims. He might seem a little like a dreamer on first sight, but the better you get to know him the more you realize how humble and down-to-earth Josh Byer is. His role models are all the big names of the grand masters of art, like Matisse, Picasso, and da Vinci. These are the artists that he looks up to, but he does not want to get too influenced by any other style. What makes his art so special and differentiates it from the others is himself. His style is called “Faux Fauvism” and that means that “the goal is to pinpoint the moment in cognition when pattern recognition occurs.” The interview showed that there are miles between the little boy who used walls to draw on and the artist he has become over long years of hard work. But something has not changed after all this time: his passion for art and his drive to express his feelings. “Painting is my way of avoiding pain”, he said but if you look at his work you just know that it’s more than that. It’s curiosity, love for arts, and the talent of a restless seeming artist that makes Josh Byer and his work so unique.
