Justin Bauer is a Los Angeles-based artist and creative director.

His current digital work questions the need for painting at the mercy of instant phone-based media. Composition takes precedence in place of designed lighting and perfect resolution; often exploiting detail of the mundane and cursory moments. These moments are strung together as narrative, an attempt to place less value on technique and more value on the surrounding environs.

In whole his upcoming body of painted work, namely 'Look Forward to Death' series and 'new paintings' preview; focus on engineering archetypical hooks designed for the human eye, in relation to loss of sensory attachment or empathy. In this sense his abstract works (previewed here) find moments of form among abstraction.


Justin currently runs a multi-discipline design house; Bauerhaus Studio.
