Josh Stover is a Portland based artist and sign painter and is one half of the sign painting & design studio Variety Shop. Josh grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida and attended the University of Florida where he completed his BFA in ceramics.Josh’s paintings depict part seen, part imagined environments and still life scenes that evoke the nostalgia and aesthetics of days past, but feel at home in the present. Working in acrylic and gouache, he recalls and invents interiors and objects inspired by the colors and shapes of old signs, vintage packaging and children’s book illustrations, and the nostalgia of old homes and furnishings. He uses flat blocks of color combined with graphic shading and altered perspective to give his paintings a playful quality.
