‘Sight’ by Justin Mays from the house of ‘maysgrafx’ is his digital and graphic art that he specialises in. iCanvas on behalf of maysgrafx produces and sells it online. The canvas art is ready to hang, with hanging accessories included and no additional framing required. These specialty canvas prints are hand-crafted, prepared on-demand. They are expertly stretched around pine wood stretcher bars. The canvas is printed with archival Ultra Chrome® Giclée inks to achieve the vivid and high-definition prints.
According to Justin, he likes to connect with his audiences, he is preferential to having a spiritual theme present in most of his artworks. The images and the themes that he choses to work with shed light on his goal of enlightening others through his work.
The hallmark of his works is the liberal use of symbols. They don’t simply tell stories but his symbology is spiritually related ‘sacred geometry’.
Justin Mays has been working in LA, California for over a decade. He runs his own company maysgrafx. The artist grew up in Annapolis, on a Christmas tree farm in the middle of the city. His mother was the art teacher at his school.
After art college, Justin freelanced around Miami and was also a VJ at the biggest club in South Beach before he moved to Los Angeles. It was primarily with the objective to pursue a career in Motion Design. Justin has worked with several prestigious brands in LA and in the world. He is currently contracted with Apple.
