Justin Lyons

Lyons is a self-taught contemporary mixed-media artist who lives and works on 30A. His work is hand-constructed and narrative, springing from personal introspection. It aims to give the viewer a reference point into a deeper understanding of a particular theme or subject matter,and to then explore on their own as to what they see and feel.

His inspirations are most often triggered by a word, phrase or thought, with the intention to try and tell a story without giving away too much so they viewer can explore their own connection to the piece.

The works below are now available for sale.
