Justin W John is an abstract artist that examines the mutual shaping of technology and society, through identity and the subconscious.

Employing physical painting and digital media as means of expression, his work addresses culture regarding interpersonal relationships, sense of self, gender, and sexuality.

Pulling inspiration from autobiographical ruminations, often layered with irony and curiosity, he makes thematic use of societal ties to technology in relation to perception of reality.

Justin works intuitively, allowing each piece to develop its personality. He bridges internal and external by translating non-physical states into gestural figures, forms, markings, and patterns. His introspective narratives act as commentary that speaks to our commonality.
