In 1997, Josue Maldonado moved from Miami, Florida to Detroit, Michigan to attend the College for Creative studies.  While there, he pursued a degree in Industrial Design - but also became a skilled craftsman in traditional fine art materials such as clay, metal, fiber, and wood.  Since receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2002, this versatile and skilled artist has truly run the gambit.  He began by teaching art to children in Detroit, then moved to Los Angeles to sculpt full-size designs for future vehicles.  His first major project after college was constructing a 12-foot tall outdoor sculpture of a robot DJ, and now he crafts intricate palm-sized droids using resin, found objects, and gold leaf. 


Since returning home to Detroit in 2011, his days are spent sculpting future vehicle designs at Ford Motor Company, and his evenings are spent diligently working in his studio.  With a skillset ranging from carpentry to sewing, jewelry to blacksmithing, industrial design to realistic figure sculpture – what Josue will create next is anyone’s guess.
