Justin Gedak was born in Langley British Columbia on September, 25th 1982, and grew up in the Fraser Valley and Greater Vancouver.

His series of digital and oil paintings are surreal gothic fantasy portraits of beautiful women who have been through troubled times, and survived to be stronger for it.

"People often ask me why I only paint sad women," Justin says, "but my response is always that I don't see them as sad. I see them as inspiring, and even uplifting. I see them as warriors who refuse defeat."

Besides painting, Justin also spends time writing fantasy/horror stories.

Justin currently resides in the Fraser Valley.
