Justin Phame is a contemporary artist born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. At a young age he became fascinated by his surroundings in the streets of New York City seeing classic typography, large billboards, hand painted signs and graffiti.
For three years Justin lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where he started to develop an identity while painting in the streets. Through these influences he began to incorporate the movements of fast paced cities and the use of bright colors into his work as a way to stand out.
He is currently sharing a studio workspace and building a new body of work with his wife Bella Amaral in Porto, Portugal. Together they have a collective called "BellaPhame". They are currently working on a daily collage project that requires them to create one paper collage per day for one year.
