Joshua Charadia

Joshua Charadia is a Sydney-based artist whose work casts an aesthetic and critical eye on the complex forms of Australia’s industrial landscape. He explores the nature of perception and awareness by drawing close attention to these ubiquitous yet overlooked scenes. Working from photographs, he employs the “slow” mediums of oil paint and charcoal to afford time to these images, usually seen in passing or from a distance. 

Charadia's association with Becker Minty began in 2018. His most recent solo exhibition, titled 'Recent Views', was held at Mr Minty's, and showcased a suite of paintings from his ongoing 'Peripheral View' series. These works were based on photographs taken between dusk and nightfall, featuring a decisively darker, more subdued colour palette. 

Charadia received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the National Art School, Sydney in 2017. He has presented solo exhibitions in Sydney and Katoomba, and been featured in group exhibitions throughout Australia. Charadia has been a finalist in numerous art prizes, including the prestigious Sulman Prize (2020) and Dobell Drawing Prize (2021, 2019). In 2020 he was awarded People’s Choice at the Adelaide Perry Prize, and in 2018 won 2nd place at the Belle ArtStart Prize. His works are held in the National Art School collection and private collections around Australia. Alongside his fine arts practice, Charadia is a published illustrator and graphic designer.
