About Josh Mayhem:
Based in Los Angeles, Josh Mayhem's lifelong habit of collecting children's playthings fueled his passion to transform said toys into objects d'art. Embracing both order and chaos as separate inspiration points, Mayhem's mixed media 'art toys' tend to be created in two contrasting styles, from his intricate and detailed assemblages, using parts from the likes of Japanese model kits, to his more free flowing and expressionist sculptures. Mayhem's works have been commissioned by private collectors and have been exhibited in a variety of contemporary art galleries as well as pop culture events.
