Beautiful Tragedy

24 x 18cm each |  Mixed Media on Paper Framed in Plexi Glass


Beautiful Tragedy is a series of mix media drawing on camera film paper. Based on the artist

previous original drawing titled “We all have our place in time”, he printed a total of 8 of these

drawings on camera film paper. As the title suggest; we all have our place in time, Justin

recreates these semi abstract landscape pieces by deconstructing and distorting the image.

After which, he intuitively draws over them resulting in a timeless form of landscapes at first

glance tragic, yet beautiful.
