Highly influenced by the D.I.Y. punk movement and involved in the early dance music festival scene, Justin started his career with installation performance art, large-scale lanterns and fire sculptures before moving to more permanent mediums of blacksmithing and recycled metal sculpture and then tattooing. He is now focused on public art and traditional painting .
