We are often asked what we use to attach our art to our walls, we choose @commandbrand @3m #3mcommandstrips they not only safely hold up artworks in our gallery, they also come off easily on our concrete walls. Advice: don’t reuse, it’s not worth it 😉

Heya there trashbag Sydney crew!!! I’m this months featured artist at the NEWTOWN BEACH BURRITO COMPANY at the Newtown Hub,top of Bedford st,a print only show...some prints of selected paintings of mine will be available for the princely sum of $15,so if you’ve always wanted a cheap piece of me then nows the time to get it! I’ll be lurking here MONDAY NIGHT from 6pm for a few hours if anyone wants to wander by and say hello,I’ll be doodling in the corner somewhere or something....prints will be available til the end of May. Big thanks to @glennoart . #joshand #joshandart #newcastleartist #australianart #younghenrys #art #beachburritocompany #newtown #innerwest #artistsoninstagram #worriedilldrinktoomuchtequilaonthenight

120x80cm(guesstimate as my tape measure has disappeared AGAIN-where does it go???)of a most beautiful sunrise over Nobbys beach,Newcastle. The sky and ocean in Newy are huge and powerful and are a constant reminder of how wonderfully unimportant we all are. Good for the soul. #joshand #joshandart #beachpainting #newcastleartist #australianart #landscapepainting #seascape #artistsoninstagram #instaart #acrylicpainting #newcastle #nobbysbeach #sunrise #oceanart #newy

Sydney crew or stalkers!!! I’m in this group show tomorrow night in Enmore at the fabulous @gallery371 if anyone wants to wander along...it’s part of the Bein’Narly festival(an alternative to the much less interesting Sydney Biennale)and is based around Beer which is probably most artists Spirit Animal so I feel you should all make the effort to come along and stuff. Bring your friends(yes your imaginary friends can come as well especially if they’re cashed up)and whatevs for a truly splendid night of cultural arty whatnot. #newtownart #newtown #enmoreroad #beer #beerart #innerwest #gallery371 #beingnarly #sando #brewery #chippendale #younghenrys #joshand #joshandart

...another view of the fabulous chippendale brewery for the Bein’Narly show opening tonight at @gallery371. So much fun painting this big stern monster of a building eh. It’s like so totes majestic. :)
30x30 inches,acrylic on canvas.

The filthy old Sando. Gone but not forgotten;well actually probably mostly forgotten,the amount of brain cells willfully killed here would be truly disturbing. From the epic Save the Sando gig to...well all that other stuff that happened there we pretty much all have a tale to tell about this iconic pub,and if you didn’t scrawl something stupid on the toilet walls at some point then you should be ashamed of yourself. Poets,artists,homeless dudes and musos all found sanctuary here.Now minigolfers do :/
This 30x30 inch acrylic on canvas painting is for the Bein’Narly show on TONIGHT at @gallery371 in Enmore. #newtownart #joshand #joshandart #newcastleartist #art #enmore #australianart #beingnarly #gallery371 #sando #painting #artistsoninstagram #instaart #sandringhamhotel #innerwest #kingstreetnewtown #architecture #architectureart #acrylicandink #oldschool #sydney #streetscape #sydneyart #keepnewtownweird #beerart #beer #brewery #sydneyheritage #architectureart #architecture

relic....42x42 inches of chippendale brewery. Anyone who lived around Abercrombie st years ago will remember the constant hum and overpowering smell of hops from this place,it was a looming dark monster that overshadowed the entire suburb...way back when chippo was a scorned dump renowned for its cheap rotting share houses, the local pubs still had many of the original working class residents lurking in corners,eveleigh street was a force to be reckoned with,and cafes were a rarity.
Most of the surrounding buildings have been torn down now but this monolith survives,though almost impossible to see now as it’s dwarfed by giant apartments and flashy shops that you’d never have dreamed would ever exist in this part of town,let alone all the trees that have appeared now where once was just a grey brown patchwork with the occasional stubborn weed. Slum chippendale is gone. #joshand #joshandart #newcastleartist #australianart #acrylicandink #painting #streetscape #art #chippendale #innerwest #brewery #chippendalecreativeprecinct #lostsydney #acrylicpainting #beer #centralparksydney #carltonunitedbrewery #architecture #architectureart #sydneyarchitecture #sydneyheritage

Older painting reworked...this trailer was one of the first things I spotted when I moved to newcastle,I’d never seen a dumped and tagged trailer before,just doing its thing sinking into the grass in a lakeside carpark...recently I went to check and after four years it is STILL there,the graffiti has changed so I took a few more photos. I could do a whole series on the changing look of this trailer. I bet the original taggers have grown up and moved away by now. #joshand #joshandart #newcastleartist #australianart #art #truckart #carart #acrylicandink #acrylicpainting #painting #truck #instaart #artistsoninstagram #streetart #grafitti

Saw this for sale,always wanted a Mercedes as a kid...I’d wander by the merc dealership on my way to school and gaze wistfully at the cars. I picked out a coffee coloured one that I’d have as a grown up. I got the coffee(haha) but the car eluded me,alas...This merc was cheap and rather ominously had the bonnet up but it was black so therefore it was totally cool. No fancy fins,hectic chrome or shiny mags though...truly an unremarkable marque. Probably headed for a demolition derby somewhere. #joshand #joshandart #newcastleartist #australianart #carart #mercedes #acrylicandink #acrylicpainting #instaart #artistsoninstagram #oldschool #carculture #painting #280se

Was working on this effy a little while back,finally finished... Always wanted a black truck. Never even had a black car. Nearest I got was painting a kombi roof black,which was ridiculous thing to do in Australia,particularly when in a kombi air conditioning means opening a window....the rest of the kombi had green blue and red panels in a style we enthusiastically decided was just like a Mondrian painting. Hmmm. Anyway,here’s hoping I have a sexy black vehicle like this one day before I finally shuffle off this mortal coil;being in a hearse won’t count,wanna be behind the wheel not in a box in the back or whatever they squash me into :) #joshand #joshandart #art #newcastleartist #australianart #carart #truckart #fseries #acrylicandink #oldschool #blacktruck #ford #instaart #artistsoninstagram #acrylicpainting #illustration

A KITTEH!!! I painted a kitteh!!! All kittehs are cute but you know they’d eat you if they were big enough. When they look at you in that funny way with their eyes half closed you know they’re actually dreaming of munching upon your meat.
Tasty,tasty humans. This probably isn’t a good way to solicit commissions is it.

Tiny drawings!!! Though this ones a bit less tiny than the others and from a few years ago now...paying homage to Art That Has Gone Before,in this case Mad Max 2. If you don’t get the reference then you really need to get out more,or less,or something anyway. Whatevs. At pub,can’t be too cerebral eh. #joshand #joshandart #art #newcastleartist #australianart #artistsoninstagram #instaart #lettering #madmax #madmax2 #dinkidi #oldschool #inkdrawing #drawing #watercolour #aussieculture #madmaxart #roadmovie #atpubshouldbepaintingoops

Yet more tiny drawings... found this little doll in an opshop,it was accompanied by a few others that were similar...it would appear that someone dropped off their entire “cat-like-creatures-morphing-into-human-babies”collection at the local vinnies in one hit. This one was so cute that even my iron clad,stony heart lurched a bit; I just had to buy it even though I’ll admit to feeling guilty taking it away from its fuzzy friends. Incidentally this was from Kurri Kurri,a town that recently received international recognition for having the worlds first ever festival of the mullet hairdo,an event that I sadly missed due to being too lazy to go. #joshand #joshandart #newcastleartist #australianart #art #artistsoninstagram #kurrikurri #copicmarkers #watercolour #dolldrawing #babydrawing #hunterregion #opshop #doll #tinydrawing #oldschool #drawing #doodle #lettering #illustration

Another tiny doodling....combining a glorious opshop vintage t-shirt find,nonsensical pirate fantasies and my rather wobbly old school banner/lettering style. Somehow I’ve convinced myself that making art about my collected treasures makes it ok to be living in a house exploding with stuff,indeed,legitimises me getting more treasure(ie junk). If I start painting dozens of old cat food tins or piles of rotting newspapers then call the authorities please. #joshand #joshandart #hoarderlife #pirate #newcastleartist #australianart #art #artistsoninstagram #drawing #copicmarkers #watercolor #oldschool #lettering #opshopfinds #illustration #filthypirate
