I believe art of any kind to be an expression of one’s individual reality and perception. That said, when one observes a work of art, it connects them to the artist by placing them in the same state of mind the artist had when creating the piece whether that be the artists intention or not. Thus, my goal is to create works of art that are stimulating enough to absorb the viewer, yet abstract enough to allow for an organic experience with each piece relative to the mindset of the viewer observing. I work to give the impression of movement and transformation, playing with perception in a way that builds a loose roadmap for a viewer that leaves room for their own imaginations to fill in the blanks and thus share in the expression of reality that the piece displays.
Justin was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, where he fell in love with the arts. After displaying his work in the galleries of downtown Kansas City, he eventually decided to study motion design at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL. Though previously accustomed to fine arts and illustration, his time spent in design school sparked a passion for movement and timing through animation that he’s since been incorporating into his static illustrations.
