JOSH LANCASTER PAINTINGS
After wanting to be an artist since he was a kid, Josh Lancaster eventually submitted to the pressure of destiny (the calling, not the church) and in 2016 moved to the Hawkes Bay with brush in hand to have a proper go at it. His landscapes often capture the geography of the heart - the places we call ‘ours’ and that define who we are and where we are from. Josh’s artistic endeavours are achieving similar plaudits to his reputation as one of his generation’s top advertising creatives. His debut solo show & subsequent show have been sell outs. Josh’s bold lines and evocative pallet make for distinctive, original artworks that happily hang in homes from NZ’s deep south to NZ’s shallow north, and even in some fancy overseas places like Hong Kong and Dubai and London and Waiheke. Josh’s studio is based in Havelock North near Tainui reserve where he lives with his 3 young sons, Lennox, Archie and Spike. The four of them can often be spotted on Joll road having a massive row over who’s the best at Fortnite, or who just cheated playing Rock-Paper-Scissors…. Eventually though, they fall asleep and the ensuing silence and stillness allows for a bit of painting to happen.
