The Rotterdam-based illustrator Joren Joshua’s witty and absurd illustrations depict everyday life in a humorous way. His drawings are imbued with both a playful quality and a certain complexity that encourages deeper research. Strongly influenced by graffiti and printing techniques, Joren has developed a graphic but dynamic personal style which he has successfully applied to a wide variety of projects for many years.
