Josh Zubkoff is a San Francisco based artist, producer, and sculptor whose versatile work explores the intersection of pop culture and profound meaning. His most recent installation, Phoenicopterus Rex, a climbable 40-foot tall steel and fiberglass sculpture, had a central location at Burning Man 2017 and was covered by Rolling Stone, USA Today, National Geographic, W Magazine, and more.
He is currently working on a monumental sculpture, Rainbow Bridge, to debut Burning Man 2018. The Rainbow Bridge will be a climbable 100′ long arch covered in over 23,000 individually addressable LEDs.
He received his Studio Art degree from UCSB in 2003, moved to Berkeley in 2003 and San Francisco in 2006. In 2008 Zubkoff received notoriety for his mural Invisible Bike, an experimental project that allowed the community to come together and paint a large mural in an afternoon by dividing the amongst participants, which displayed on the side of a three-story building in downtown San Francisco. It was picked up by Fark, Digg, Laughing Squid, and Gawker. The mural was later included in the Jejune Institute’s tour of the city. His paintings and portraits has been featured in several galleries, public spaces, festivals, start-ups and private collections.
