Justin Giunta is an artist who contemplates themes of commodity and aesthetic value structures through a range of media. From painting and drawing, to jewelry design, Giunta extracts and subverts themes of luxury with his unique hand composing elaborate and ornate compositions in an entirely contemporary way. The present collection of drawing and paintings explore the distinct themes of spirituality and commodity as constructed by the past and reinvented with a modern take on materials and techniques forging new aesthetic values. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Giunta has studied at several art institutions including Pratt Institute and Gerrit Reitveld Academie in Amsterdam. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Carnegie Mellon University and a fellowship from Yale University. Justin lives and works in New York City.
