Q&A with Justin Sterling

What inspires you?

People that resonate with my tastes in acting, music and life

Have you studied art practice in the past?

Yes. I took art courses all through school and I have made it my main focus. I plan to one day go to art school in either Paris or New York

What artists do you look up to?

Salvador Dali is a huge inspiration for me and even though my work does not reflect his style in any way, his eccentricity and views on life do

When do you most commonly create your art?

When I’m inspired! Art is one of those things you can’t force but if you do it’s noticeable to all

Where do you create your work?

I do most of my art in my bedroom in Vancouver. One day, when I can afford to move out, I hope to get a loft that I can turn into a studio
