Combining color, moodiness and pretty girls is all Joshua Petker needed to do to win me over. I love his work, although I could do without the more morbid pieces. Yet there is something so surreal and touching about each piece that I can't help but appreciate even those.

Based in Los Angeles, Joshua Petker is somewhat "reminiscent of Symbolist / Art Nouveau painter Gustav Klimt," as Life Lounge notes. Inspired by graffiti at first, Joshua Petker has now branched out to create pieces like those seen in the gallery above.
