Josh Vyrtz (b.1992) is an artist based in London and Stoke-on-Trent, working across performance, film, writing and image-making. He uses the archetype of the performer to engage with social issues. The bulk of his time is spent collecting research. When creating a new project he aproaches the work from two sides - one that is journalistic and, simultaneously, one that is deeply personal and autobiographical.
He has devised two shows that have completed runs at the Edinburgh Fringe festival, exhibited both nationally and internationally, taught developmental workshops at Focal Point Gallery (2018), and been shortlisted for both the Kaitak Centre residency (2018) and the Red Mansion Art Prize (2017).
