JUSTIN LEITNER

JUSTIN LEITNER 0

Justin Leitner is a full time professional artist with 15+ years of experience.

Justin explores the psychological phenomenon of Pareidolia (a type of illusion or misperception involving a vague or obscure stimulus being perceived as something clear and distinct) with the use of Abstract Extractionism as means to visualize the subconscious. 

Painting by Justin Leitner

His work utilizes the Cavazos method of recognizing an idea, image, scene, or further point of Abstraction within the Abstract. "I believe that the images our subconscious reflects onto the naturalistic world is ingrained into us as humans. Our brain is wired to find meaning and to identify structure and order around us."

The work Justin creates often represents a duality between the naturalistic world and the subconscious; narrative as it relates to a narrative framework, and chaos versus order.

One of our earliest artist members is Alice Holleman. She's an illustrator living in Raleigh, North Carolina - she's originally from the Charlotte area, and studied at East Carolina University. Her style of artwork depicts the frivolity of life, while acknowledging harsh realities.  Her illustrations typically feature people and/or animals done in ink, pencil, and/or watercolors, and range from 4x8 to 11x17 to large-scale murals in Greenville as well as other cities, and soon to be in downtown Raleigh... 

She produces original illustrations and prints, stickers, koozies, comics, zines, and more! See all of Alice's work available at Imurj!
