Joseph Whitmore is an artist living in London whose professional practice spans 3D animation, VFX, workshop facilitation and game design. His varied and multifaceted practice has seen him produce short films, perform live visuals, create music videos and code interactive media.
Born in Leicester, UK, he later moved to Manchester to study Illustration with Animation at Manchester School Art. It was here where he developed the experimental and holistic style of artmaking he utilises today.
Upon graduating in 2014, he was selected for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries exhibiting at the World Museum, Liverpool and the Institute of Contemporary Art, London.
Notable moving image works include a commissioned solo exhibition Into The Midst (2019) by Waterside, Sale and funded by Arts Council England, and co-animating To Miss The Ending for studio 'idontloveyouanymore', awarded Best XR Film at London Film Festival and screened at Sundance Film Festival (2020).
In 2021 he received funding from Arts Council England to undergo a period of development focussing on animation and digital technologies as part of the Developing Your Creative Practice funding strand.
Other selected public artworks include commissioned projects by Future Everything, NOMA, The Portico Library, and Royal Exchange Theatre facilitating a variety of outputs that include live theatre performance, delivery of community workshops, and public installation.
As an extension of his fine art practice, he also initiated One Dish Room, a food focussed participatory project which hosts workshops, pop-ups, and a collaboratively produced recipe book.
