Hello there! I am Joshua Barrera, an artist from a nation of over 7,000 islands. This blog of mine is all about the stuff I love – art, adventures, and toys. It’s a portfolio of my artworks, a series of my photos from my adventures around the world, and my toy collection.
I love the arts (paintings, illustrations, sculptures, photography, and fashion mainly) and I consider myself a maker of art. My favorite medium is ink. I often try other materials like paints and incorporate them with my art style. What inspires me in making works are my travels within my home country and overseas, my hobby in gaming, collecting toys, reading myths and legends, and sci-fi and fantasy themes.
I also showcase my exhibits and the events I have participated in or curated (if not my works). I love going to exhibitions and galleries.
It’s all about adventures as well since I love traveling to many places. I travel mostly for sightseeing. I feature my hobbies like collecting games and toys which I have been doing for around 10 years. My largest toy collection would be Pokémon, since I collect all sorts of merchandise from figures and plush toys to accessories and home essentials.
VIBRANT Art Studios
I am a co-founder of VIBRANT (VIBRANT Art Studios or V.A.S), an artist group founded by me and my best buddy Nigel Villaceran. Officially launched in 2017, the two of us aimed to achieve our ambitions and dreams in our artist careers together.
