Classically trained, Joshua Dean paints in the four color process, using only one color at a time – allowing the process to mimic a printer.  He graduated from The New York Academy of Art and obtained an MFA in 2008.  He has shown in NYC galleries and the Chelsea Art Museum.  He has been published in PoetsArtists Magazine, Create! Magazine and showcased on BuzzFeed, BeautifulBizarre, Super Sonic Art and Booooooom.com.  His work is in the private collections of The Clearing House and the CEO of ExxonMobil.  He recently branched out to show in Miami at the Real Men show during Art|Basel, Painting the Figure NOW at the Contemporary Museum of Art in Wausau, WI and at the Gallery at Zhou B Art Center in Chicago.
