joshuagabriel (b. Joshua Gabriel Lunsk) is a New York based artist and musician whose work combines drawing, video projection, murals, music, and performance. joshuagabriel updates the aesthetic of psychedelia to create a kind of hybrid space in which a mythologized version of his own ego, constructed of variable disposable personae, is at the center. Drawing on his experiences as a visual artist and musical performer in the New York underground, his work leans towards spectacle, drawing on sacred objects and readymades, projecting onto walls, and combining the abstract and figurative in a riot of color. Born and raised in Philadelphia, he received his BFA from the Tyler School of Art, and his MFA from Brooklyn College. joshuagabriel has created large scale murals throughout New York City and has exhibited and performed in the United States.
