Born 1989, in Leeds lives and works in London & Wiltshire.

Josh Bitelli received a BA (Hons) in Design & Craft from the University of Brighton in 2012. Since graduating he has been awarded the Freshair Apprenticeship  Bursary and an internship with furniture designer Fred Baier. He is represented by Gallery FUMI.

His practice centres around the translation of research gathered from a given site into crafted objects. The history or provenance of a place becomes the foundations for an experimental de-coding, a type of story telling that narrates how things work, the people involved and the materiality of things.
