Justine "Tini" Stilborn
Blending the contemporary art world with the low-brow and banal pop culture to create a deeper connection between fine art and consumers by taking advantage of technology's potential for graphic design. Tini uses her art as a means of exploration to contemplate the world we live in both analytically and empathetically. Justine Tini Stilborn's artwork lets you both criticize and celebrate the "shallow emptiness of consumer culture."
Stilborn's work speaks to identity through people, place and power. It seeks to be commercially appealing by offering up the sensibilities of consumerism and pop culture for viewers, often creating tongue-in-cheek works that are layered with meaning that is playful but also offers a social critique. Her works explore the intersections of graphic art, animation, pop culture and fine arts, as well as the "shallow emptiness of consumer culture" while still celebrating it.
The theme my generation explored was the relationship between capitalism and art.
