The Art of Justin Guse


The art of Justin Guse takes the concept of graffiti to an entirely new level. It is one thing to paint 3D effects, but creating a 3D environment is something altogether different, and more important, refreshing. Below is the description of some of his work, directly from the man himself:

Urban sprawl, also known as suburban sprawl, is a multifaceted concept, which includes the spreading outwards of a city and its suburbs. In these pieces I hope to document the energy of raw graffiti like 3D structures tearing apart visual space and reclaiming urban environments. Both graffiti and native artwork influence my daily art-flow and these pieces speak from my heart as a reminder of indigenous culture. The spaces I chose often hold a strong history, Energy or otherwise underlying beauty that can sometimes get masked by daily city life. This passion for reclaiming public space emerges out of a passion for street art and I continue to look towards graffiti and native art as two of my main sources of inspiration.
