Joshua Yeldham






Joshua Yeldham is a mixed media artist born and living in Sydney, Australia. He finished Bachelor of Fine Arts from Rhode Island School of Design, USA. His work has lot of detail and drawn with a deep spiritual connection with his surroundings. The owls is a symbol of both good and evil in his work.

"The owl is a recurring image in Yeldham’s work, so much so that it has come to almost act as a metaphor for the artist, or even perhaps the ghost that haunts him. Known in mythology for their wisdom and ability to be both virtuous and predatory, owls play a distinct and multifaceted role in Yeldham’s unique visual language."

He has done several solo exhibitions and has won many awards for his work including the Wynne, Mosman and Sulman art prizes.
