Highlighting ROAM Gallery Artist
Justin Valens - Artist
Currently Resides: Rimbey, Alberta
Justin Valens was born and has spent most of his life living in the Edmonton area. His grandfather helped him paint his first oil painting in 1998 and bought him an oil paint set that year for Christmas. After a trip to Ghana in 2008, Justin painted his first large-scale landscape in acrylic marking the beginning of his artistic career.
In 2010, Justin graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor Degree in Secondary Education. Later that year, he began teaching art to grades seven through twelve in the town of Rimbey.
Today, Justin’s works centres around a series of oil paintings with accompanying narratives currently called “the Winslows.” In between Winslow paintings, Justin returns to his roots and continues to work on experimenting with landscape paintings.
