Joshua Jenkins


Biography/Artist Statement

Joshua Jenkins was born in New Jersey in 1987. Primarily raised and home schooled in Poughkeepsie, NY, he experienced the Northern grit of diverse culture, urban decay and most importantly, acclaimed museums of the Big City. During the summers Jenkins spent time with his father in central Kentucky, which he would call home during his high school years. His youth spent in the easygoing backwoods of the South contrasted with the fast paced life of the North; a dichotomy that would greatly influence his artistic work later in life.
