Josh Muir is a Melbourne-based multi media artist who produces panels printed on metal inspired by street art and hip-hop. With this new body of work, Josh transports audiences to a psychedelic, surrealist dreamscape and examines his night terrors, his history and his future through a new series of eight works in a powerful black and white palette.
Muir is previously exhibited at the Warrnambool Art Gallery with a solo exhibition and has recently been included as part of ‘Marking Time: Indigenous Art From the NGV.’ In December 2019 he presented a large-scale multi-media project for the inaugural Going Solo: First Nations 2019 exhibition at Bendigo Art Gallery and the previous year Muir held a major solo exhibition at The Koorie Heritage Trust.
In 2015 Muir was the recipient of the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award – Youth award and in 2016, Muir completed the 12 month Hutchinson Indigenous Fellowship and Residency at the Victorian College of the Arts. Muir’s work has been acquired by the Koorie Heritage Trust, The National Gallery of Australia, Bendigo Art Gallery, the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, the National Gallery of Victoria and was commissioned as a major project artist by White Night.
Josh Muir is represented by MARS Gallery, Melbourne.
