Sacremento born, Berkley-based artist Justin Lovato is an illustrator with a penchant for explosive colors, eye-catching, dreamlike landscapes, and subjects that are one part monster, one part distorted human.
As an artist, Justin Lovato's strongest skill is his ability to put all these seemingly divergent ingredients together to create a smooth, cohesive, and sensible painting. His artwork is intended to reveal his thoughts on nature and humans relation to it, the political control system, and multidimensional concepts.
As an artist, Justin Lovato's works have a certain musical quality to them, so it should be no surprise that his art studio is usually filled with the sounds of legendary artists like Theolonius Monk, John Coltrane, and Pete Seeger. His confusing, multi-faceted artwork has begun to attract the interest of art museums around the US. His work has been featured at the Heist Gallery in San Francisco, the Giant Robot Gallery in New York City, and Art Basel in Miami, Florida.
His most recent exhibit was at the 'There Is No Telling' show at the Double Punch Gallery, which closed in mid-April. Keep an eye out for this special talent, it won't be long before the rest of the art world picks up and corporate America comes calling.
