Josh Herrington creates a new aesthetic of surrealism with rainbow-like coloring. Originally from Austin, Texas, Herrington creates unique and thought-provoking surrealistic work. Herrington’s biggest addition to his style is that he will often replace a specific feature of his model with something extraordinary. This imagery holds great weight and impact, especially with the tones and shapes that he chooses to use.
He will replace the skin of a model with a galaxy, or invert their faces into a variety of different shapes and fantasy-like images. There is a sense of melting and fading away with his technique of pulling down the facial features of his models, or creating a swirly effect to distort the image. The most common tie-in that he incorporates into his pieces, is that multi-color glare. That rainbow elaborates a feeling of euphoria and a likeness of hope. Even when the model’s face may be stoic or sad, there are multiple colors present.
