Josh Bowe

Elected a Member of the RCA in 2016, membership lapsed in 2017

Elected a member of the RCA in 2016. Josh Bowe's painting about the universal human experience, the
distillation of the base elements binding together. His portaits transform one man's longing or one woman's suffering into reflections at the core of the viewers' own personality. The identities of his subjects, their backstories - whether they live on the street or in a mansion - are subservient to their role as archetypes.
