Josh Sperling is an American artist born in 1984 in Oneonta (NY, USA), currently living and working in Ithaca, New York, USA.

Josh Sperling draws on the language of minimalist painting from the 1960s and 1970s, primarily working with shaped canvases that walk the line between painting, sculpture, and design. He crafts intricate plywood supports over which canvas is stretched and painted in a signature palette of saturated, sometimes clashing colors. Mining a wide range of sources, from design to art history, Sperling has crafted a unique visual vocabulary remarkable for its expressive quality and irrepressible energy.

The artist’s background in furniture-making and graphic design also influences his practice.

Sperling’s work is included in the public collections of the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris and the Arsenal Contemporary Art Center in Montreal.
