Lifes full of tales that have yet to be written they say... well this one has yet to be fully painted. Although born in Staten Island in 1991, Justin did not start perfecting his craft until mid 2016 when faced with horrific health issues at the time.
Starting early 2016 down over 30 pounds, eventually put back on with the assistance of steroidal injections, things didnt seem to be going well for Justin at all. According to friends close to the artist, he was surviving on Powerade and Gatorade in the beginning - unable to bring himself to eat anything, he was getting his calorie intake from the drink and staying hydrated as well. He was too weak to even open up the bottles himself. These bottles would go on to serve as partial inspiration for one of Justins first pieces
Although it would not be learned until several months later when he would officially be diagnosed with chronic Lyme Disease, Justin continued experimenting, creating, and producing new pieces of art that would expand boundaries and push his artistic limits as if there were no issues. Painting was the perfect outlet for Justin as he was unable to process audio and visual imagery due to the ongoing issues with his illness.
The most favorite works of art that Justin produces fall under the category of Comical - Contemporary Satirism and Americana Art - a label he invented for the pieces that embody the spirit of the country - also 22 of the Americana Series ...
