Justin Krietemeyer’s Optimistic Graphics

Justin Krietemeyer lives and works in Southern California. His often tie-dyed iconography always emits unbridled glee. Color drenched acid house smiley faces, peace signs, and uplifting text are common in his mixed media pieces. His work has been described as: “…a recontextualization of mid-’90s rave, surf, and street culture presented as paintings, drawings, and mixed media pictures.” The artist himself acknowledges the optimism inherent in his work stating: “It’s important to remember to have fun, I want the experience of standing in the gallery to be so strikingly bright and positive that our guests can’t help but talk about good times and leave with a positive charge.”
