Josh Elrod is an abstract artist who uses experimentation and a daily drawing and painting practice to create works that reveal personal truths and unconscious stories. After almost 20 years living in New York City, Josh recently relocated to Nashville, where he and his wife opened a design shop called Wilder. (They also just debuted a concept shop called Wilder Etudes.) This modern-day renaissance man studied drawing and painting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, is an actor and musician and spent ten years as a member of the Blue Man Group. Josh’s life and creativity are completely intertwined: from curating the shop, to drawing with his kids at the kitchen table, his life informs his art and vice versa. Josh has had solo exhibitions in Nashville and his work has been included in group exhibitions in New York, Brooklyn and Nashville.
Outside of the studio, Josh finds creative fuel practicing yoga and going fishing.
