Justin de Verteuil

Justin de Verteuil (b.1990)is a Düsseldorf-based artist whose figurative oil paintings reveal the intricacies of the human experience as an individual existing in a complex interpersonal society. Characterised by the tension between proximity and distance, his compositions depict individuals in multilayered group settings or as isolated figures, capturing situations emblematic of contemporary and timeless phenomena. The spaces peopled by de Verteuil’s figures extend through their atmosphere and dimensions the inner reality of their inhabitants and act as planes of projection for the viewer: a play of ambiguity and details, grounded in settings referencing the familiar and mundane. Born in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, de Verteuil studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.
