Justin's film making career was born out of his work as an artist. The success of his video art won him recognition in the fashion industry where he has taken the burgeoning fashion film arena by storm.
Justin studied painting at the Slade School of Fine Art, and won the John Ruskin Award for Painting then went on to study at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam under scholarship.
He assisted acclaimed artist Bruce McLean on a number of shows whilst launching his solo career as a video artist. He made a continuous action live tv broadcast for Dutch Cable art channel Salto.
Justin's installations showed all over Europe including The Rathaus in Esslingen and the Daniel Buchholz Gallery in Cologne. A series of his bullfighting art films have been shown at the National Film Theatre and the Photographer's Gallery here in London and in Berlin.

The film he made for Roksanda Ilincic A Poem for A was commissioned by the Milan Vogue Italia exhibition. He has made films for Showstudio's Future Tense Festival including House of Flora and a trilogy for Armani that premiered on Vogue.it.
