Josh Sperling (b. 1984, Oneonta, NY) is a New York-based artist who works primarily on shaped canvases that he creates by stretching canvas over intricate plywood supports. These bases are then painted with saturated color and assembled into three-dimensional, almost sculptural mosaics. While in the tradition of minimalist paintings of the 1960s and 1970s, Sperling brings a contemporary edge to his work through outrageous color palettes and exaggerated movement.
Recent solo exhibitions of Sperling’s work have been held at Perrotin, Hong Kong (2021); Bill Brady Gallery, Miami, FL (2020); Perrotin, Shanghai, China (2020); Perrotin, Paris, France (2019); and Sorry We’re Closed, Brussels, Belgium (2019), among others. Sperling lives and works in Ithaca, NY. Sperling is featured in Between the Lines: An RxART Coloring Book by Contemporary Artists – Volume 8. Click here to download and color his drawing spread.
