Retroverse is Josh Garcia’s first solo online exhibition organised in partnership with ArtWorks. The exhibition features 63 pieces of digital and traditional art created since the start of Covid-19 pandemic.
All of the work in the exhibition have a ‘Retro’ style taking inspiration from 1930’s
cartoon, the 1980’s and 1990’s animation. Many of the works shown in this exhibition
are representing current events in society while others give a nod to nostalgia. Josh
is a skilled illustrator balancing important themes with light-hearted comedy.
The characters Josh creates in his artwork take references from his own life such as
‘Elijah the Autism fairy’ as well as adopting more fictional characters like ‘Skulluks’.
Josh explores a variety of concepts in his work and is influenced by mixing styles of
different cartoon eras. As you virtually navigate the exhibition you are transported
through different themes and styles all telling fascinating stories. To view more of Josh's work click here.
