However, he tells us his style hasn’t always flowed as…

Joshua Lynn

“[I started] inserting this sort of technological aesthetic to it: a lot of grids and pixels and things of that nature, and it started to just sort of take over.” When an artist tells you that they are a landscape painter, you imagine the same tired imagery that you see in your parent’s childhood home.
