#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.
