My current artistic direction is creating pixel art. All my work is painted with acrylic paint and I use various types of stencils to create the shapes. It first started with simple square pixel patterns in which I used masking tape and have since progressed into more complex shapes. For the more complex shapes I get custom stickers manufactured and have just recently been experimenting with multiple shapes and complex patterns within a single painting. The painting Ngadi is a perfect example, it was created with 10 different shapes with a diamond pattern.
I paint geometric shapes with acrylic paint to create optical illusions and thought provoking contemporary art. My left brain is in a continual dance with my right brain resulting in straight lines, bright colours, and perfected details.

Justin Blayney Artist Bio
Justin Blayney paints geometric shapes with acrylic paint to create optical illusions and thought provoking contemporary art. His left brain is in a constant dance with his right brain, the result of which are the straight lines, bright colours, and perfected details that his paintings contain. With a background in graphic design and all his artwork starting on the computer, Justin is able to fully realize his vision from start to finish. His current artistic direction is mimicking the computer and how computers generate images.
In many ways Justin’s work is a reflection on how we view life. When we are close to a situation we can get lost in the small details, but when we step back, we see the whole picture and everything becomes clear.
His artwork can be seen around the city of Toronto in various venues and shows. He has been at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition for the last 2 years and will be on display again in July 2014.
