Justin Gedak was born in Langley British Columbia on September, 25th 1982, and grew up in the Fraser Valley and Greater Vancouver.
His series of digital paintings are surreal fantasy portraits of strong but flawed women. Moody characters caught in thoughtful poses from a place far away, and a time long ago.
Their personalities are powerful and brooding, their hearts harboring equal amounts of both good and dark. Their spirits are wounded, but surviving. Scarred, but prospering. Beautiful, and ambitious.
The creation process is a combination of digital painting and photo manipulation using Corel Painter, Adobe Photoshop, and a Wacom Tablet.
