Joshua Kochis grew up in the suburban forests of Southeast Michigan. He has always had busy hands. He can often be found wandering in the woods, climbing trees and digging things up from the ground. His practice is focused on creating images, objects, and installations in collaboration with the natural world, with a focus on public sculpture that has a positive impact on the surrounding environment.

Joshua installed his first permanent public artwork in 2022, as part of a beautification project for Bryant Vermont Park, located north of Woodbridge Neighborhood in Detroit, MI USA. His sculpture titled Bouquet is currently part of the collection at Michigan Legacy Art Park, where he served as the 2021 Charles McGee Artist in Residence in Thompsonville, MI. His work has been shown most notably at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, among other galleries and institutions across the Midwest. He received his BFA from the University of Michigan School of Art & Design in 2015, and is currently based in Detroit, MI.
