Joseph Loughborough earned a BA in Illustration and Philosophy from the University of Portsmouth. He spent his formative years exploring the derelict boatyards and creeks of Portsmouth, on the south coast of the UK. After graduating he pursued interests in art, philosophy and skateboarding culture, living in London, Paris before finally settling down in Berlin.
Joseph’s impulsive and intuitive rapid-fire mark making centers on honesty, expressionism and possibly exorcism. The result is an attempt to grasp a comprehension of the human condition. Drawing inspiration from various themes concerned with Camus/Kierkegaard’s notion of ‘Absurdity’, each drawing becomes story pursuing a standing point within the concept.
