About Me

My name’s Joshua A. Hayes. I am a freelance visual artist, visual designer, and visual strategist. As a visual artist, I have 20 years of experience specializing in figurative drawing and illustration. As a visual designer, I have 10 years of experience specializing in brand and logo design.

Education

I Graduated from Miami International University of Art & Design with my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts in 2019, where I studied Visual Arts, Graphic Design, and Advertising. 

I then attended Florida International University in 2020, where I obtained my Masters of Science, In Marketing where I focused on branding, digital marketing, and analytics.

My Background

I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. My curiosity and creativity have always been core pillars of my personality which lead me to who I am today. I’m the youngest of three -the golden child, and yes, I do remind my sisters of every chance I get.

My adventure in the arts began because I left my house keys a lot as a kid in elementary. To pass the time waiting for someone to come home, I had to get creative. So I sat down, pulled out a pencil and a journal, and started drawing; I have never stopped since then.  

I don’t know what else to say…

My Hobbies

I live and breathe art and design. Even in my sleep, I’m creating or designing something in my head, on my tablet, on paper, or my computer. I also love working with my hands creating clay sculptures, and building random things around the house.

Some would say I’m a bit of a tea addict, but I would say tea enthusiast -plus, I can stop at any time. 

About My Work

My artwork consists of these realistically rendered figurative forms with portions of their flesh exposing the anatomy underneath. These figurative forms are then confined into these hexagonal shapes, which I refer to as panels.

I Like to use concepts from various ideologies and perspectives of life in my work because these are things I’ve always left me curious to know more. Yet what really interest me is how all of these ideologies in one way or another kind fit together like puzzle pieces.
