Justin Deister

Louisville, CO

In my fine art, I allow origins to remain clouded, paths to be nonlinear and incomplete. Mystery is more fun! In the ambiguous and subjective, interesting relationships are created, and for the viewer, there may be meaningful self-discovery. When I bring objects and elements of design together, memories and associations generate new relationships and tell new stories. If the viewer suspends judgement and patiently listens, they may even whisper to you. There are neither right nor wrong interpretations - only ones’ genuine personal response.

Clouds present a special interest to me. I think of them as ambassadors of good will. Floating throught the atmosphere that we all share, they suggest that we become better stewards of our natural resources, share and find ways to get along in peace.

I studied design at MSU in Springfield, MO for a BFA, enjoyed a year at the Kansas City Art Institute preparing for a masters in graphic design at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. Professionally, I have provided creative services for law, travel and tourism, taught elementary school art and advanced courses in design at Colorado State University. My brand and corporate communications work has appeared in Communication Arts Magazine, American Corporate Identity and Color
Management For Logos.

My wife and I enjoy living in Boulder County, Colorado where we hike, bike and camp the mountains and find among them
identity, inspiration and renewal.
