Justin Pearson

Expressive and sometimes dramatic, Justin’s exhibition features portraits, landscapes and works inspired by the theatre. These works are full of movement and nuance, all brought together skilfully with the most beautiful use of colour. 

 

Born in Christchurch, Justin left New Zealand and made his way to London in 1981, where he completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts at Byam Shaw School of Art (Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design).

 

He is represented in private and corporate collections in New Zealand, Australia and the UK and has won several awards including the Southern Highlands Portrait Prize, 2013, the Fettlers Heritage Art Prize 2011 and the Heysen Prize in 2007.  He has also been a finalist in The Adams Portrait Award, Wellington New Zealand, the Fishers Ghost Award including this year, and a semi-finalist in the 2014 Doug Moran Portrait Prize with a portrait of the artist Euan Macleod.
