Artist Profile

Born 1970, Sydney, Australia

Lives & Works – Bayview (Kuring-gai)


Drawing from a deep observation and a reverential love of nature, Joshua Yeldham’s art practice forms a complex interplay between narrative and myth, imagination and experience.  Through his highly symbolic visual vernacular, the artist takes us on an inward odyssey exploring the threads that weave cultural ideologies, philosophies and religions across East and West. Working across painting, kinetic and musical sculpture, carved works on paper and photography, Yeldham has developed a singular aesthetic that often conflates these various mediums. 


Joshua Yeldham has exhibited widely throughout Australia and internationally. In 2017 he was awarded the renowned  Nancy Fairfax Artist Residency at Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Arts Centre, that culminated in a critically acclaimed survey exhibition. Yeldham has been a finalist in numerous prestigious awards including the Wynne Prize (2019, 2018, 2017, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2009), Archibald Prize (2013), Sulman Prize (2006, 1998) and Mosman Art Prize (2005, 2003) and in 2015 he participated in the London Art Fair, ART15. Yeldham’s work is held in many important collections including Mosman Art Gallery, Manly Art Gallery and Museum, Australian Stock Exchange, University of Wollongong and BHP Billiton Collection, as well as numerous private collections in Australia and overseas.
