Justyn Warner is a Toronto artist living and creating in Connecticut.



Toronto artist Justyn Warner creates contemporary abstracts that are strong, bold and colorful, unashamed of the journey between opportunity and adversity. He explores the languages of color and texture with substantial canvas work and delicate paper pieces.

Justyn Warner lives and creates in Hamden, Connecticut. He was originally born and raised in Toronto, Canada. 

Warner developed a love for drawing young, but it fizzled out behind his dream of becoming an Olympian. After spending more than ten years training as a professional athlete, Warner retired from athletics as an Olympian and went full force into his passion for painting. He studied old masters techniques in drawing and painting at the Milan Art Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. 


About The Work

With a strong affinity to movement, Warner aims to connect the desire for something good to happen and the moments in life that detour us from our destiny. There is hope.

The symmetry from instinctive applications of paint creates robust, bold and colorful works of art. Movement is abstracted with distraction and clarity to bring subtle sophistication to a unique balance of color, composition, and texture. Every piece has its journey and challenges the viewer to carry hope in every moment of life including through any crisis that we will face.
