Josh Vasquez is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work currently focuses on painting. He
is a first generation Salvadorian-American engaging in his practice in Los Angeles, where he
was born and raised.
His recent work features paintings that describe the Los Angeles landscape and the
way ideas of access and barriers present themselves. He focuses on these moments in order
to turn them into artworks that put emphasis on obstructions that can often be overlooked, such
as plexiglass in a liquor studio.
He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis on drawing and painting
from the California State University of Long Beach in 2017. He has exhibited work at Residency
Gallery, The Torrance Art Museum, Tlaloc Studios, MUZEO, Stay Gallery, and Munzón Gallery.
