Josh Bygrave


Landscape and seascape artist based in Plymouth, Devon. I am 27 years old and have been creating paintings from a very young age where I initially started painting wildlife. From studying Fine Art at GCSE and A Level I became interested in landscape and seascape painting and I was introduced to the work of JMW Turner who continues to inspire my work. I take great interest in painting the South Devon coastline and the surrounding Devon landscape. Working exclusively in oils my work explores the way texture and light can be manipulated to achieve a greater sense of depth, atmosphere and perspective. Aiming to create an expression of the location, my paintings hugely relate to my own interpretation of the scene combined with an emotional response to the sense of place.
