A free­lance con­cept artist based in Barcelona, Spain, Joseph has worked on pro­duc­tions such as War­craft, Game Of Thrones, Biu­ti­ful, Europa Re­port, The Im­pos­si­ble and A Mon­ster Calls. “Liv­ing in Barcelona, I feel the in­flu­ence of the great masters Gaudi and Dalí,” he says, re­veal­ing that he wanted to be­come an artist ever since he watched Blade Run­ner when he was five years old.

“I am also obsessed with gui­tars, the num­ber 21, the planet Jupiter and the ex­act math­e­mat­i­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tion of pi,” he re­veals.

1 Worm sands “I re­mem­ber watch­ing Dune when I was a child. One of the things that re­mained in my sub­con­scious was the sand­worm crea­ture. Years later I read the Frank Her­bert novel and it still re­mains one of my favourite sci-fi books. This is my in­ter­pre­ta­tion of sand­worms.”

2 Tribal God of Fire “I wanted to cre­ate a horned char­ac­ter with su­per­hu­man abil­i­ties and deep es­o­teric knowl­edge. I re­ally love sym­bol­ogy and oc­cultism in paint­ings, be­cause in my opin­ion it cre­ates a deep layer of sto­ry­telling within the im­age.”

3 Time-Space trav­eller “I love to paint sci-fi scenes. This one shows a time-space trav­eller just be­fore his jour­ney. I like to find un­usual shapes when I de­sign space­ships, but in my mind even this awk­ward de­sign has a lot of func­tion­al­ity and makes sense.”
