The work Viridian by young artist Justin Williams may appear to be the product of an active imagination. In recent years, however, Williams has been living and working in Victoria’s picturesque Dandenong Ranges, where he has encountered unique tales and characters that have proven to be more curious than fiction. From his idyllic studio in the mountains Williams produces distinctive ceramic and painted works that reflect on and celebrate the character of the place he lives.

Justin Williams is a painter and ceramicists based in Victoria. Williams was born in 1985 and received a Bachelor of Communication and Design, Majoring in Printmaking and Illustration in 2004. He has held solo exhibitions in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney and had his work featured in numerous publications including Artist Profile Magazine and Australian Creative. This is Williams’ first solo exhibition with Anna Pappas Gallery. Williams is represented by Anna Pappas Gallery.
