Justar Misdemeanor Taylor

“I do art innit” is a phrase I adopted in college and began printing on t-shirts after people questioning “what I do?”

Essentially it defines my creative practice as I do not like to be restricted to one field but rather feel free to incorporate ideas and play with unorthodox materials.

Art is a vital part of my life allowing me to creatively express my feelings, thoughts and concerns, whilst raising awareness on controversial and traumatic, social, political and environmental issues.

Employing a child’s perspective has been a dominant theme throughout my work, deconstructing nursery rhymes and lullabies, recreating and adapting familiar found imagery to engage the viewer and provoke thought on varying subject matters. Influenced by an ever growing range of artists and photographers whose styles vary but all provoke thought and push boundaries.

I like to challenge myself with ambitious large scale projects, constantly exploring and experimenting with a variety of processes, techniques and materials to strengthen my abilities and enhance the final outcomes. Currently concentrating on large scale drawings, recreating war scenes that confront the viewer with the harrowing reality of what many face on a daily basis.
