Have you heard of the art style Faux Fauvism?
You can be forgiven if you haven’t, as it’s a relatively new modern art movement, inspired by the likes of Matisse, street art, Cubism and the early 20th century French paintings known as Fauvism.
One pioneer of the Faux Fauvism style is visual artist Josh Byer, who lives and works in Vancouver, Canada. His distinctive pieces of art are bright and modern, with a mystical edge, and bursting with colour. It’s art that pulls you in – there’s so much to see within each piece, and you’re likely to spot different elements each time you look at it.
Josh’s popular artwork now appears on over 1,000 licensed products, including canvasses, prints and posters, available online from stores such as Wayfair, Art.com, Amazon, Posterlounge and AllPosters.
