JUSTUS ROE (American, b. 1977) lives and works in Chicago.
Art - Justus Roe works in a variety of visual mediums including canvas painting, large scale wall paintings / murals and sculptural installations. His work references architecture, city grid systems, and landscapes. His stylized forms, mark making and color palette develop work that is at once reminiscent of aerial perspectives and metropolitan environments.
Audio - Taking a spontaneous and experimental approach to recording music, Roe is influenced by early rap, Chicago acid house, psychedelic, classic rock & tropicalia music, his production focuses on capturing and molding raw, unpolished, yet epic sound characteristics. Combining the use of analog tape and limited digital processes, he assists in the creation of vivid and memorable audio experiences.
Art & Technology Education - For the past decade, Roe has also worked as an Art and Technology educator in Chicago. Focusing on developing skills that empower, Roe creates engaging experiences and opportunities for students and faculty aimed at improving education.
