AD 7 | Daniel Segrove x Justin Hopkins
"The Importance Of Collaboration"

Justin Hopkins (b. 1986) grew up in the small town of Mukilteo, Washington.  Immersed in the arts early on, Justin began drawing at age six; garnering corporate advertising assignments by the age of fourteen.

After graduating from high school his talent caught the eye of legendary illustrator Charles White III, who hired Justin to work for his Architectural design company Olio Inc.

In the years since Olio Justin has worked as an illustrator, sound designer and composer releasing albums on LA based labels Non-Projects and Geweih Ritual Documents.

Justin currently spends most of his time painting and walking his dog in Brooklyn, NY.

Daniel Segrove is a young emerging mixed media artist from San Francisco, CA and a recent graduate from Academy of Art University in 2014.  Segrove's work is about human emotion described by combining the outer physical expression of figures with his inner self expressive abstract marks.

He often works on burnt paper and other fragile surfaces to coincide with the fragile psyche of his figures.  Segrove tried to combine many different mediums, artistic techniques, and textures to create a cohesive and unique artwork that the viewer can connect with.

"I started this series as a means for exploration, an exploration of self, and an exploration of the perspectives of other artists.

This series is an unabridged documentation of conversations between artists. It’s a series dedicated to breaking down the barriers we tend to set up in our own minds. I want to inspire future creatives to have the courage to explore and experiment. This is about making dreams a reality and not about letting our dreams fall to the wayside.

My intention is to give my audience a sense of real human connection, something that feels rich and organic.

When I was thinking of a title I thought of the word “movement”.

In relation to the Renaissance period in art, my goal for this program is to signify a rebirth of consciousness towards the way we look at contemporary art."
