Joshua Thorsen, also known as Teens On Acid, is a neo-pop artist.
TOA was formed in 2007 with the intention of being a collective of artists but soon turned into a personal brand and the focus of Joshua’s creative output.
His art is heavily influenced by the 80s and 90s skate scene, manga, anime, western Saturday morning cartoons & the phenomenon of action figure and trading card culture.
The community that supports the work of TOA resonates deeply with collectibility. This in turn fuels the generative nft releases and 1/1 weekly art drops that take place on the Fantom blockchain. Collectibility is always at the forefront of his creative thinking, believing aesthetics will always surpass rarity.
It's with that mindset that style and character is applied to his work within the digital and traditional art space to deliver collections that stand on their own and resonate on a personal level with collectors. One does not have to chase rarity to be understood or stand on your own when entering the TOA community as a collector.
