Joshua Lefchick was born in Washington, D.C. and received his Bachelor of Fine Art
degree from the Corcoran College of Art and Design. His parents were liturgical artists
in the Orthodox Church in America, and from an early age Joshua was exposed to art
from the ancient world. This fascination with Greco-Roman antiquities, specifically frescos and Fayum portraiture, led him in to his investigation of surface. His passion for the ancient, combined with living in news saturated Washington D.C., has synthesized into a individualized language that addresses both global and individual crises.
In 2008, Joshua was accepted as an MFA candidate in the Hoffberger School of
Painting Program at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. He is
the recipient of Hoffberger Foundation Scholarships 2008-10. He is a candidate for the 2010 Joan Mitchell Fellowship.
His curatorial experience includes the Hoffberger School of Painting’s 2009 group show.
Joshua currently holds the position of Art Director for Warnock Studios, Washington's
premier decorative painting firm. He lives with his wife Kelly in Washington D.C.
