About the Artist

image022Joshua Hutchinson is a self-taught digital illustrator and concept artist. His personal work largely consists of landscapes and environments that can range from loose and impressionistic to the more refined and realistic. He strives to infuse all of his works with dramatic lighting, a strong narrative and vivid colours whilst drawing inspiration and influences from traditional East Asian cultures. He also enjoys experimenting with contrasting elements such as depicting sci-fi technology in an otherwise traditional or natural and organic environment.
