Justin Williams Australian, b. 1984

Justin Williams is an Australian artist who produces contemporary folk art paintings and sculptures inspired by the mythology and residents of Australia's remote Mount Dandenong region. Williams has exhibited extensively throughout Australia as well as internationally in France, America, Belgium, Greece and Denmark. 

 

"I use really raw pigment and I’ll lay out a heap of base colours, then build up layers and then scratch it all right back to get these nice abstract lines. It bounces between having a very direct idea of what I want the painting to be, to letting it take its own organic form."

- Justin Williams
