Justin W. John

Artist’s Statement

Inspirations. At their truest state are the transitions or connections my naturally inquisitive and introspective mind sorts out of the gray matter. Interpersonal relationships, textual translations, and pixelated information make up our evolving social normative models; in essence, our story. It’s through these periods of reflection — littered with random synaptic firings, formed with plasticity in mind and of body — that I connect some dots. It’s all part of the kaleidoscope I work within.



Narrative

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 graphic design at the Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore, MD. He received his BFA the spring of 2003; shortly thereafter he relocated to Washington, D.C.

His career as a freelance graphic and web designer was just starting. Soon his clients included B.E.T., The Peace Corps, and McGraw-Hill Publishing. In his spare time enjoyed getting involved with D.C.’s vibrant music scene by working with a few production companies. He also held creative and management roles in the retail industry with Urban Outfitters, Pottery Barn, and FLOR (Interface) to name a few.

In 2014, Justin moved cross-country to Boise, Idaho to be closer to his mother. 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.
