Joseph Justus (b. 1982) is a contemporary American artist whose works re-imagine the physical and conceptual landscapes that make up the city. Drawing inspiration from the urban fabric and the human body, his paintings experiment with surfaces that act as lenses or x-rays steadily moving in and out of plane. We see one thing on the surface – skin, buildings – but there are complex currents right under the surface.
"In my current work, timing is so important. There needs to be some kind of adrenaline in the painting. It’s not just a visual, but also a physical process for me. The constraint of speed and risk is critical. I measure the value of my work in this wager."
Joseph received his BA in Architecture from University of California, Berkeley and MA from Columbia University, New York. He lives and works in Los Angeles. He has participated in group exhibitions both in the United States and Germany.
