Joshua Hacker lives on Maryland’s Eastern Shore where he grew up. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at Frostburg State University. “As an artist, I have a style that relies heavily on improvisation and abstraction, with an emphasis on academia, resulting in a kind of ‘intellectual surrealism.’ Since I try to be environmentally and socially responsible, I generally try to limit myself to materials that are readily accessible to everyone, often used or recycled materials.”
