About Joshua Vides
Joshua Vides is a first-generation Guatemalan, born and raised in Rialto, a low-income town in Southern California. To avoid boredom, and although his parents downplayed the importance of artistic skills, for Vides, it came naturally. From an early age, Vides re-drew cartoons, which turned into skateboard graphics, often in black and white. Vides believes that everything starts with a sketch and “taking everything back to its origins,” so it’s no surprise that urban art and public spaces have been a prolific first platform.
