Justin Schaefer is a Los Angeles based artist that focuses on photoreal figurative paintings. Drawing influence from mysticism to mythology, Schaefer is influenced by authors, philosophers and mystics as well as painters and film makers. The visual content of his work does not allow his practice in the field of photorealism to anchor his work down, instead it heightens the fantastic subjects and imagery Schaefer creates in his large scale oil paintings. Working from all angles of creation in the work, Schaefer has found himself as painter, model, set designer photographer and collaborator to bring his works to completion.
