josh keller was born in the ferric blue-collar mountains of western pennsylvania. His unmistakably middle-class childhood was tempered by the sensibilities of this community that toiled at turning iron, limestone and coke into cold hard steel.  the mill town values that emphasized a hard day’s work and the production of the physical underpin josh’s creative practice. 

in 1996 he received undergraduate degrees in architecture and science from kent state university.   since that time he has worked for various architects in cities all over the world including cleveland, washington dc, pittsburgh, chicago, london and san francisco.  in 2006 josh decided to pursue his master of fine arts at the san francisco art institute. 

josh’s work is idea and process driven.   he chooses mediums as a builder would a tool, selecting appropriate materials for the project.  His work has been exhibited at the legion of honor in san francisco, kimball gallery at the de young museum, the diego rivera gallery at san francisco art institute, and the pittsburgh chapter of the american institute of architects gallery
