Joshua Gurrie

While Australian illustrator and painter Joshua Gurrie takes inspiration from the racier elements of contemporary popular culture, his work also seeks to counter the over-saturation of "pop media, web junk and glossy sneakers." He achieves this with clean black lines that pierce the page with their directness and his work is notable for its lack of excessive ornamentation. Gurrie’s background in design contributes to this minimalist approach but it’s his surrealist take on the human form that captivates most.
