Reflections of Bayfield, a coffee table book by the Bayfield Historical society is a result of the excavation and consideration of thousands of artist depictions of Bayfield throughout the decades. The beautiful book is a love letter to a small sailing town on the coast of Lake Huron in Ontario. In their search for Bayfield art, The Bayfield Historical Society discovered Justin Thomas' work in 2013 from a display at Kryart Studios (special thanks to Kirstyn Watterworth), postcards at The Village Bookshop, and eventually at the Albion Hotel, where it now resides.
The technicolor version of "Bayfield" (2013) was published in Reflections of Bayfield among so many amazing artists. It is truly an honour to be featured in print alongside such talented Canadian artists.
Welcome to the new website. Finally, an all-encompassing online home has been built for the entire collection of art, music and videos created by Justin Thomas. Feel free to take a look around, listen, enjoy and share your favorite pieces of the collection. The website encompasses works dating back to 2007, bringing a reflection on the beginnings and the evolution of the artist. The portfolio is organized according to series. Each series is unique and explorative in a style of its own. The Landmark Caricatures page premieres the brand new piece The Chrysler Building (2015) today.
Additionally Introducing: a new Bending City video series. The teaser for the pilot Bending Beijing is now online.
Bending Beijing: spanning time in the streets, listening to the locals and the expats, tapping into the stream of consciousness of asia's most obscure metropolis.
To the many people who have contributed, inspired, and helped make my creativity possible: Thank you.
This website would not be possible without the incredible support of Jennifer Mao Jones - I am forever grateful to your loyalty and consistent faith in the Bending City collection.
Special thanks to: my parents, brother and sister, my extended family and family friends who have always encouraged and believed in me.

BELOW ARE LINKS TO THE CREATIVES WHO HAVE INSPIRED, SHAPED, AND PUSHED ME FORWARD ON THIS PATH. PLEASE CHECK THEM OUT!
The artist personally delivered his first Yoga Studio commissioned piece along with unique postcards for the small business to sell. Oasis Yoga - the thatched-roofed wooden platform on stilts overlooking the isolated, exotic beaches of Koh Lanta, Thailand - was the perfect establishment to inspire art and inherit an original new visual to boost its character.
The owners, Farra and Kate were struck by Justin's hand drawings and decided to display a few more original pieces of locations on the island depicted in the work. Oasis Yoga Lanta is officially displaying a small part of the Thailand collection - Luang Phor Klai, Tiny Mosque and Lanta Shrine - all for sale at artist price.
