Joshua Barr- Quality- Original


Enamel and emulsion on board
80 x 80 cm

Joshua has had an obsession with letters since he first picked up a can of spray paint when he was 14. During his time at Duncan Of Jordanstone College of Art and Design he developed an appreciation for hand painted lettering and sign writing. His work today attempts to bridge the gap between these disciplines, mixing mediums and methods to make commentaries on his surroundings and influences.

Quality is one of the most implemented words in commercial sign making as it informs the consumer that the advertised product or service is of a certain standard, however it is also one of the most commonly used adjectives in British slang.
