A highly regarded modernist, Justin “Tiny” Nuyda has crafted a brilliant, lyrically surreal brand of art featuring ethereal abstract compositions borne out of a delicate mastery of the craft. In his work, Nuyda emphasizes depth and atmosphere, aspects that are not usually associated with abstraction.
His beautifully evocative forms seem to move, undulate, and flutter in an atmosphere of their own. His consistency of using such forms is unmatched in its gentle, fluid evocations. This deviation from the norm allows Nuyda to achieve a more intimate form of expression.
