Bold Ideas by CupOfJoe2472 (South Carolina, USA)

We are longtime fans of Josiah Albright, a College of Charleston student whose boldly colored, geometric artwork you’d recognize anywhere. While his primary focus is performance theater and Jewish studies, Josiah experiments with digital art on his own, naming the Bauhaus movement and suprematism as inspirations.

“Color manipulates us. It will play with you, hide from you, lead you, deter you… As artists, we need to understand how color affects us.”

— Josiah Albright
