As a young Western Canadian visual artist based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Keith Weiss is currently making his first marks as a professional fine artist. Inspired by many art forms, he also has a keen interest in the influence his tools and materials have in determining his style and content. His exploration of form and colour provides an understanding of the myriad possibilities inherit within any creative endeavour. Keith's youthful energy and openness keeps his work fresh and constantly evolving.

"using materials in their simplest form so intrinsic qualities show through — and a rigorous design efficiency that strives to get the most impact out of the fewest moves. Josh founded his design practice in 2005 as a way of continuing his lifelong interest in the nature of structure, space, and materials. though his design practice is driven more by intellectual curiosity than pragmatism, Josh is still happiest making things that are meant to be used. Josh uses his understanding of the built environment and how it is inhabited to inform his designs, and he hopes his products will help foster a more intuitive understanding of all objects in the people who use them."
