Noah Emhurt’s work is a culmination of his surroundings and lifestyle. Everything around him is an influence: music, magazines, billboards, a decayed urban landscape, conversations and even the daily mail.
Before his current location, Los Angeles, he spent time living in New York and Japan. His hunger for cultural “differences” is sometimes evident in his paintings as is the occasional inclusion of the Japanese language.
Often unknowingly, the choices he makes in his work are influenced by juxtaposition, double meanings and instinct. Noah himself is usually blind as to where each piece will take him, and according to him, that’s exactly how he prefers it.
