Powerful Artwork Depicting Dystopian Scenes of Nature Covered in Graffiti and Trash

 Dystopian Scenes of Nature

Josh Keyes, artist from Portland, Oregon, has created a powerful speculative post-apocalyptic series.

Josh Keyes’ style is reminiscent of the diagrammatic vocabulary found in scientific textbook illustrations that often express through a detached and clinical viewpoint an empirical representation of the natural world. Assembled into this virtual stage set are references to contemporary events along with images and themes from his personal mythology. Josh Keyes’ work is a hybrid of eco-surrealism and dystopian folktales that express a concern for our time and the Earth’s future.
