Originally from the United States, JOSHUA WATTS received his undergraduate degree in printmaking from Bradley University and an MFA in Fine Arts at the University of South Dakota. During his academic study and beyond, he has continually created and exhibited his work across the U.S. and internationally, including venues in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Venice, and Dubai.
In 2007, Watts conducted a series of visiting artist workshops at facilities from South Dakota to the east coast over the course of six weeks. Five schools participated in all, including: Grandview College in Des Moines, IA, Bradley University in Peoria, IL, University of Buffalo in Buffalo, NY, George Mason University in Washington, DC, and East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. At each institution, monotype printmaking techniques were demonstrated to students, who worked with his assistance to create work using the methods demonstrated.
Since 2008, Joshua Watts has been a Visual Arts Professor at Zayed University in Dubai, UAE. Teaching printmaking and many other studio art courses, he continues creating his own work while promoting the aesthetic, conceptual, and expressive growth of students in his classes and workshops.
