Welcome to mind of PolkTheArtist! First off, I appreciate you for taking the time to view my art work, clothing and other creations.
A little about Polk...
Joshua Polk is a native of Atlanta, GA. He is a professional artist making a strong leap onto the art world. His early work revolved around painting portraits as he was intrigued with connecting with his fan base. Interactions involved drawing in the park, sketching in Starbucks or even singing a melody. As his knowledge began to expand beyond his comfort zone, Polk began to test new mediums and ideas.
The artwork often produced is a strong blend of figures and emotion. The strong emotions are captured in the most intense of movements, matched with the most dynamic of colors, creating endless stories.
Other work explores the modern world, the struggle of politics and life. Not only does every art piece have a story but every piece also has a motive.
Through the course of Joshua’s exploration the meaning has evolved; still every piece captures the inherent internal beauty of art but still presents a strong message to viewers.
