Justin Hopkins (b 1986) grew up in the small town of Mukilteo, Washington. Immersed in the arts early on, Justin began drawing at age six; garnering corporate advertising assignments by the age of fourteen. After graduating from high school his talent caught the eye of legendary illustrator Charles White III, who hired Justin to work for his Architectural design company Olio Inc.
Upon relocating to Los Angeles, Justin began creating works for Google, REDBULL, Wired-Magazine, Pabst, and ESPN. These experiences allowed Justin to delve into various mediums, always refining his talent and pushing the boundaries of his creativity.
In late 2012, Justin began working almost exclusively with oils and currently juggles life between LA, Seattle and Brooklyn.
Justin's work is poetic; often cinematic in its attention to color and execution of mood.
