Joshua Ben Longo is a Brooklyn, New York-based artist with a good sewing machine and a unique world view. He likes monsters, which is quickly evident in a visit to his Longoland website.

His wool felt Monster Skin Rug is just one of his many creations. He also makes furry monsters sporting anatomically-correct bums and upholsters chairs with interesting textures, including, ‘monster skin. ‘

Longo has just returned from Paris where he participated in a group show: Noveaux Monstres at the Exit Fesitval in Creteil, France.
