Josh Yavelberg found a passion for the arts at an early age; he began attending figure-drawing classes as well as open drawing sessions at the University of Miami. He focused on these sessions until the end of his high-school career when he was accepted into the Fine Arts program at Pratt Institute.
While incorporating his knowledge of Art History with his artwork, the dominant theme throughout his body of work seems to be a depiction of life as he experiences it. It attempts to search for the essence in capturing the interaction of people and space with emphasis on themes of light, perspective, color, gesture, medium and size. The main goal has been to provide the viewer with an opportunity to interact and connect with his works of art while expressing the world from a unique point of view.
Yavelberg intends to continue his education and grow as an artist, as he continues his doctorate work in high education, specializing in the arts. With this he keeps the simple goal of obtaining knowledge of technique thorough research and viewing of the masters of art history, he has continued to create.
