About

JOSEPH WILLOUGHBY
I'm a 26-year-old artist from Burnley, UK, now based in Toronto, Canada. After studying Architecture for 6 years, I immersed myself in art, finding solace and expression following my father's passing in 2018. Over the past 5 years, I've transformed my emotions into visual symbols, exploring life through paintings and drawings of manipulated still-life objects. My work delves into societal challenges and personal beliefs, offering an alternative perspective on modern life, and blending digital and traditional techniques.
