Who are you and what do you do?

Justin Queal: I am a multi-disciplinary Artist with a focus on creating engaging, identity driven Public Art for commercial, community and residential spaces. I am a Sculptor, Muralist, Painter, and Maker.

How did you get your start?

I got my start live painting, nightly, alongside musicians at Beeloe’s on 5th and Mill in Tempe in 1997. I was doing it because I loved it and then a few months in to it the work started selling like crazy and I was hooked. I have had other big breaks along the way that have propelled me into Public Art.

What inspires you?

Trying to articulate the power and unique nature of Women. Beauty in simplicity and natural design. Expressing beyond language. Energy. Rhythmic patterns, and music.

What do you like about AZ?

Exciting people, rich visuals , global cuisine, Vibrant personal expression, the pace of the City and the opportunities that it brings.
