Justin Caguiat: All flesh is Grass, and all its Trust like the Flowers of the Field

I really dig this All flesh is Grass, and all its Trust like the Flowers of the Field painting by Justin Caguiat. I love the painting, but the title rocks too. All of his titles are ambiguous quotes. Many have religious implications. This one is from 1 Peter 1:24 in the Bible. He us also a poet.

Justin is now one of my top favorite artists. I love how his paintings meld together a pastiche of memories. One reviewer says he blends paint and memory. I think that is an apt description, and I get a really cool visual from it. I sort of see his memories pouring out from his head to the page, swirling together in bright colors.

He is one of Asia’s rising new artists. I can see why. He lives and works in NYC.
