Given Name: Josh Pearce
Artist Name: fplus
Location: secret station uberplus
Who are you? (background, inspirations, etc.)
a self taught artist/ fantasy nerd, I’ve always been obsessed with making little monsters and telling stories.
What attracts you to using designer toys as the canvas for your art?
I’ve customized most of the things I’ve owned, when I got my first dunny, I repainted it for my brother and had a ton of fun doing it. At the time, I didnt even know it was a thing a community of people did!
What was the inspiration for your piece in the exhibition?
Just trying to knock the rust of my imagination a little bit i guess.
Where can someone find out more about you and your art? (website, facebook, twitter, instagram)
My website is www.fplusnever.com and you can find me on instagram: @fplusftw
Anything Else you’d like to say:
Stay gold, pony boy!
We also asked fellow extremely talented artist Cass Jerman to describe Josh’s work:
“Inwardly endearing. I always felt that Josh’s characters (and I say that because they all explode with story behind the scenes) at the core, are holding onto something very important. They’re just looking at you waiting for you to be ready to hear it.
From there, he cloaks them in his love for fantasy: elaborate dressings, his appreciation of innocence, these big plates of armor, but all that weight still doesn’t manage to downplay the initial patience of that character. That’s great.
They have so many layers that they become really approachable in their conversation. Actually quite reflective of himself.”
This has us very excited to see what Josh has in store for the DTA Dunny Show! Keep an eye out because we will be showing some teasers soon!
