Education: Columbus State University, BFA

Joshua Shorey was born in Maine, where he learned to cultivate a perpetual hope for short summers. His New England upbringing instilled in him the unshakeable concern that one must keep moving or freeze to death. In 2007, he received his BFA from Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia.

Joshua Shorey considers his practice as an artist to be one among many facets of what it means to live life well. His interests in art include sculpture, drawing, performance, and video, as well as motorcycle riding, training horses, lighting things on fire, and telling jokes. He sometimes succeeds in his goal of making works of immaculate, shattering beauty.
