Hi, I'm Josh.

I'm a Designer, Artist, and World Builder currently exploring play and flow with the Shaking The Tree Theatre


Joshua (Josh) Sin is a Canadian artist and designer living in Portland, Oregon. He centers his practice around design fiction and world-building using textiles and character design to explore middle culture. The bridge between East and West, the bonds between past, present, and future, and the intermarriage between tradition and modernism.

Trained as an industrial designer, shoemaker, and innovation strategist, he has shown previous exhibitions at Parallax Art Center, Portland Chinatown Museum, and Metaverse Biennale in Dubai.
