Messiah Joshua G. Willis Is a multi-media artist, born (1991, New York, NY). Messiah is engaged with contemporary strategies addressing the psychological state and multi belief systems of the American society. Messiah is interested in captivating the viewer in a way that grants them partial insight into the human mind, allowing them to examine how politics, education, and advertising play a role on the things they find to be truthful. He works with non-objective art that would not only serve as a representation of the world but shift the mind inside to voice a subjective experience. Applying paints, objects, and physical actions in each piece he creates an abstract vivid universe that allows color and form to live by their own enigma. His paintings exhibit a fixation with material and experimentation.
