Justin Clayton, Austin, Texas Member Since February 2007 Artist Statement Justin Clayton studied traditional painting at Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Arts and California Art Institute in southern California. One of his current projects is Daily Paintings, where he creates a small original oil painting almost daily. His daily paintings have been featured in USAToday, Food & Wine Magazine, Domino Magazine, and Washington Post Express.
Describing his work, Justin says, "I’m most interested in painting the singularity of a subject. This singularity and a simple design make for a beautiful painting. I call most of my work 'portraits.' Typically, a portrait is a likeness of a person but I like to broaden the definition to include many subjects. After all, I feel the subjects I paint have a personality of their own. Whether it is a row of palm trees or a single orange, they all exude a character."
Justin currently lives in the Austin, Texas area with his wife, Natalie.
