Joshua Longo

Joshua Ben Longo graduated from Pratt Institute in 2003 with a bachelors degree in Industrial Design. In reaction to the restrictive world of commercial design he began to pursue showing his own work which includes sculpture, furniture, elaborate exhibits, and illustration. Joshua has shown his work throughout the world including the Shelburne Museum in Vermont, the Society of Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh, PA and most recently in Creteil, France for Nouveax Monstres (Exit Festival). He has been featured in a such publications as Surface, Hi-Fructose, and Flaunt and has received tv news coverage for his work in the states. He currently works at Pratt Institute teaching 3-D design and as a product/graphic design consultant. Along with the art, Joshua writes music and looks forward to a long career in motivational speaking. In November 2010 Joshua presented 'So Hush You Little Ones" at RA Antwerp, a series of devilish little monster sculptures & illustrations "made to recreate that blinded excitement when you enter a toy store or the first time you go to the zoo”.  The pieces embody a sense of ritual and unknown function, suggesting a social narrative and a mythology for the creatures which inhabit the space. Joshua promised that this show would take the viewer “further down the Longoland monster hole!”
