Studio visit with Justin Giunta June 30 2015
If you have never seen or heard of Justin Giunta's jewelry line, Subversive, you should probably check that out here. He creates amazing accessories, and we are lucky to have him design an accessory for us coming up soon! In addition to his jewelry, he is an illustrator, painter, and sculptor. He also throws a mean party.
Today we took a tour of his studio, talked about the dying commerce of fashion, and our mutual love of print and pattern, fine art, and cigarettes.
Justin Giunta is an artist who contemplates themes of commodity and aesthetic value structures through a range of media. From painting and drawing, to jewelry design, Giunta extracts and subverts themes of luxury with his unique hand composing elaborate and ornate compositions in an entirely contemporary way.
