Biography

Satish Joshi (known professionally as Satish) has been a prolific visual artist and educator for five decades. Working in the mediums of painting, sculpture and printmaking, he is best known for achieving unique effects through experimental techniques. He pioneered a unique printmaking process, which he has continued to refine over the decades. Even his painting methods are unconventional; he mixes acrylic modeling paste, gesso and oils to achieve his signature three-dimensional effects on the canvas. While Satish has produced a variety of series in a range of materials over the years, his work is unified by an exploration of light, color, dimension, texture, and a reverence for the forms of the natural world.

After completing a Degree with Honors in painting and printmaking at the New Delhi College of Art, Satish settled in New York. He currently lives and works in Yonkers, NY. A passionate advocate for the arts in his community, he has inspired generations of young artists at Riverdale Country Day School in Riverdale, NY, where he was a member of the Visual Arts Department from 1974-2011. He is currently Artist-in-Residence at the School of the Holy Child in Rye, NY. Satish was a founding member of Art on Main Street in Yonkers, NY, and he served on the Board of Directors of Phoenix Gallery in New York, NY.
