Josh Tiessen is a young international award-winning artist from Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada. Considered one of the world's top 10 prodigy artists (Huffington Post) and the only known male art prodigy in North America (Dr. J. Ruthsatz, global child prodigy expert). Tiessen was juried in as the youngest member of International Guild of Realism (IGOR) ranked among foremost realist artists from around the world, and Artists for Conservation (AFC) an elite group of the top 500 wildlife and nature artists worldwide. Mentored by masters such as acclaimed wildlife artist Robert Bateman, Tiessen has exhibited his work for the past decade in 70 exhibitions including the National Gallery of Canada and also exhibits internationally, having sold 80 original works and hundreds of limited edition giclée prints to private and corporate Canadian and international collectors. Featured in over 125 magazine and newspaper articles and on TV, speaking and teaching at 40 venues, making 70 invited art donations to charitable organizations, and established his own "Arts for a Change Foundation." He has garnered over 45 awards and honours including IGOR Creative Achievement, Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and Canada's Top 20 Under 20 for his artistic accomplishments and philanthropic work.  In spite of this early success, Tiessen humbly acknowledges that his artistic talent is a gift from God. His artistic style is contemporary "high realism" and he delights in showing the beauty and diversity of creation, and the image of God in human creativity.
