Justin Gedak was born in Langley British Columbia Canada on September, 25th 1982, and grew up in the Fraser Valley and Greater Vancouver.
His series of gothic fantasy digital portrait paintings are themed around the concept of individuals who have gone through times of trouble, and survived to be stronger for it. Characters who've endured the worst of life, but still managed to maintain and enhance their sense of strength, beauty, and honor. Warriors who refuse defeat.
The stranger series of surreal oil paintings Justin describes more so as being themed around the unseen worlds that we keep hidden behind the perfect faces that we try and portray to those around us--and also that the stronger parts of ourselves are often the most ancient, primitive, and monstrous.
Besides creating artwork, Justin also spends time writing fantasy/horror stories.
Justin currently resides in the Fraser Valley.
