Savage Artist

Always an artist, Josh J. (aka “Savage Artist”) started out using his drawing and painting as a way of expressing himself. In a home with several sisters, his art became his way of helping him cope with the responsibilities of being the man of the house at an early age. He moved from watercolors to acrylics before he advanced to trying his hand at tattoos. Rebellion drove him forward as did exploring his talent and looking deeper inside himself to find some type of motivation.

Being savage

As time passed, the need for an education forced him to choose to enter a community college. Limited resources prevented him from exercising his true potential in a more advanced learning environment. The lessons learned during this time showed him how to go after what he wanted at any cost. As his talents turned toward graphic arts and eventually to photography, his motivation to excel began to take shape. Living in Memphis, he had plenty of beautiful things to photograph. It was up to him to put his own unique spin on things to make them his own. He wanted to make them savage.

A view through a lens

Once he had his camera, photography and the art behind it became his true and undeniable obsession. Landscapes and architecture are where he chose to place his focus. It was his ultimate goal to bring out the beauty of some of Memphis’s most famous structures. Whether it is showing the beautiful interior of a church or a view of Memphis from several hundred feet in the air, Savage Artist always pushes his art to the absolute limit.

Savage Artist is making a name for himself in both the architectural realm as well as within the area of real estate. He can capture the essence and character of any building he shoots. He brings out the unique aspect of a building that may not be noticed by the naked eye. Whether you are looking for up-close and personal or a bird’s-eye view of the city of Memphis, Savage Artist offers exactly what you are looking for. Explore Memphis. Look at it through the eyes of a savage!
