Justing McAllister Articulates the Various Connotations of Fire

Justin McAllister's artwork is truly one-of-a-kind. His style is not only a unique combination of various artistic influences, but his portfolio in its entirety tells a grand narrative of humanity's struggle against a fast approaching ice age.

On his website Justin McAllister categorizes his photorealistic paintings into very basic groups. Within those groups are subheadings that describe the overarching impression of the illustrations including aggression, intensity and loss of control.

The juxtaposition between a sense of destruction and turmoil is matched with the opportunity for warmth, comfort and a sense of security. The world in McAllister's drawings is already on the brink of disaster, so people's approach to his art inevitability determines the impact of his work.
