Joshua Hogan was born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and received his BA from Carlow College (now Carlow University). While at Carlow, Hogan began a series of paintings inspired by his participation in the program, Semester at Sea. This journey to 15 countries, including Egypt, Vietnam, Turkey and Morocco, laid the foundation for the fluid shapes he creates today; a way to visually communicate his own interactions with people as well as the interactions he observes between people. In 2001, Hogan launched BoxHeart Gallery in Bloomfield and began exhibiting fellow emerging and mid-career artists whose artwork exemplifies the diversity and originality of contemporary art. Since then, he has exhibited over 500 regional, national, and international artists while maintaining his own art practice. In 2007 his paintings shifted from an earthy palette to a chromatic palette when color joined shape and exploded onto his canvases. His paintings evolve, hyper consciously, with the use of color and shape to describe environment and energy. Hogan’s paintings have shown nationally including exhibitions in the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Westmoreland Museum of Art, and Fallingwater’s Huntington Museum as well as internationally in the Love Art Fair in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Hogan’s paintings have also appeared in several film productions including Bloodlines (TV Series), The Perks of Being a Wall Flower (Feature Film), and Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl (Feature Film). Through IATSE 489 Studio Mechanics Union, he has worked as a scenic artist and paint charge on productions such as Marvel's, The Avengers (Feature Film). Hogan is also a professional custom framer and art installer recently completing projects with Art Installer Network. This paintings were exhibited at Aqua Art Miami during Art Basel in Miami Beach, 2016. He is currently working on the series, "Memories From the Future" which are also on exhibit at The Vault Gallery in Cambria California. This May, he exhibited at the Superfine! Art Fair in New York City during Frieze Week. He is also working on an exclusive series, "Radiance", that is available exclusively through Crate and Barrel.
