Joshua Vides has been a BMW enthusiast since childhood

Joshua Vides has been a true BMW enthusiast since childhood. He grew up in a deprived suburb of Los Angeles, where BMW and especially BMW M vehicles were rarely seen. So seldom that Vides always paused as a child when a BMW drove by. The fascination for the brand grew and with it the desire to own a BMW one day. After an extremely varied professional career - Joshua Vides already worked as a barista, firefighter, window fitter, delivery driver as well as graphic artist and designer of various streetware labels - he found his current calling as an artist. His breakthrough was the artistic decoration of a world-famous sports shoe, which was followed by collaborations with world-renowned companies and his own collections.
