ABOUT JOSHUA WINER
Joshua Winer's background includes a Degree in Fresco
Painting from the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (1976),
a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts from Yale University (1978), and
a Master's Degree in Architecture from Harvard University (1986).
After practicing architecture for three years, he became a licensed
architect in 1989.
Joshua's fascination with public art was sparked while
exploring Europe during his early twenties. In Paris, Florence,
and Venice, he saw magnificent frescos and mosaics in historic architectural
settings. This was the genesis of a career focused on the creation
of art that complements its environment.
Joshua developed his expertise as a muralist while
still a student at Harvard's Graduate School of Design. During this
period he created 'The Harvard Square Theater Mural' and 'The Mayor's
Wall' in Boston's Old City Hall. While practicing architecture in
Boston he often collaborated with architects, notably 'The S&S Restaurant
Mural'. When he won a major public design competition for the Newbury
Street Mural in 1991, he started a full time career as an artist.
Joshua Winer has created more than 100 murals and
works of public art, from very large exterior murals for city centers
to very personalized interior murals for homes, and everything between:
murals in hotels, restaurants, hospitals, old-age homes, mansions,
museums, castles, bathrooms, office buildings, parking garages,
malls, theaters and schools. He works in many media, including paint,
mosaic, ceramic, brick, metal and wood.
Joshua Winer is bilingual in English and French. His
son Charles lives in the French Alps and loves to write fiction.
He is currently at work on his fifth novel.
