Josh Young has become the darling of every home design Pinterest board with his modern take on historic portraits. His Portrait Art Collection offers a series of classical portraits with the eyes playfully and provocatively crossed out.
A self-proclaimed artist since age six, Josh is an American-born, Milan-educated artist. His works of art are very much modern, contemporary things, yet they have classical elements, and even a nostalgic quality. What we love most, apart from the creative portraits, is his studio and apartment he shares with his husband in Chicago.
If you are more into the abstract scene, check out his Retrograde Collection – a mix of shapes, lines and muted monotone color palettes.
One of the greatest things about Josh’s work is how affordable it is. Many of his prints are under $100.
