Justin has taught Art History, Art and Design for over ten years in New Zealand and Shanghai, China. Currently he is mentoring and teaching teenagers in the visual art field as well as overseeing their pastoral needs.
This year’s artworks explore melodrama in relationships through a comic book, expressionistic style. Also the old Napier hospital makes a comeback using collage and paint.
All Justin’s works are on plywood and framed in native timber. His fan, ink scrabble originals are available on paper as well as his Chinese porcelain silhouettes (prints) – Mickey Mouse, Milk Carton and Stiletto. Justin considers all artworks a self-portrait and possesses many ideas and history. His art often includes Maori motifs or text or ideas of relationships and social media.
