but to create a reality of the same intensity.

When I’m asked what type of art I create, I often stumble to find the words. Hence, being a visual artist, I find it easier to communicate with imagery.
As far as general terms of medium and genres are concerned, my work boils down to painting, graphic design, photography, and more recently, video production and editing.
Within those contexts I explore abstract expressionism, pop art, and portraiture in my painting. Design wise I like bold, modern design, but truly it depends on the clients taste. Photography, my style defaults to that of the flâneur, I explore landscapes in both city and nature; both everyday and far off places.

Justin W John was born on the U.S. Naval Base Subic Bay in the Philippines in 1981. He grew up on the East Coast in Virginia and Maryland. His artistic talents lead him to study art and graphic design at the Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore, MD; he received his BFA the spring of 2003.
Shortly thereafter, Justin relocated to Washington, D.C. and began his career as a freelance graphic/web designer. While working with and agency he had opportunity to work with some colorful (and some not-so-colorful) clients. He gained experience in different areas like publishing and in-house corporate design.
As time passed Justin grew his range of talents and experience including being able to add retail fashion merchandising and rug design as some new found strengths to his resume. In true creative spirit, his passion for music lead him to engage with Baltimore and D.C.’s vibrant music scenes by working with a few production companies as a promoter.
In 2014, Justin moved cross-country to Boise, Idaho to be closer to family. Currently, he lives and creates the majority of his work in his studio in Boise’s historic Idanha Hotel. Often splitting his time to visit with his father in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
I’m an artist living in downtown Boise, Idaho. I cover a myriad of subjects, from a local to global scale.
Focal areas of interest typically are the arts, music, technology, social matters like psychology, mental health, sexuality, gender, and equality. Maybe some light politics thrown in here and there, however I generally don’t enjoy talking about Cheetos.
