Joshua Beresford is a British artist living and working in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Joshua works mainly in mixed media paintings and collage. He graduated with a First Class Honours Degree at Leeds School of Arts, Leeds Beckett University in Fine Art.
His paintings explore nature, landscape formations, geology, agriculture, ancient occupied land and patterns found within the natural world. Growing up on a small holding in a small hamlet near Skipton, North Yorkshire, the surrounding areas enriched with waving hills, farmland, moorland and natural beauty has always heavily influenced his work.
Joshua's collage work explores antiquity, as well as our relationship with nature, contemporary fashion and historic artefacts. His collage work only uses recycled materials found at local tips and charity shops, as well as materials donated to him.
