Description

Justin Winkel is a self-taught artist and gallery owner from Maryland. As an Abstract Artist, Justin works in a variety of mediums with the use of bold colors & texture. In 2005, Justin experienced a traumatic loss that truly reshaped his life and caused him to struggle with personal direction and purpose. After 8 years of uncertainty and choice decisions, in February 2013, at the age of 23, Justin turned to Art as a new hobby and stress reliever. The moment Justin put a paintbrush to the canvas, was the first time he felt true peace within his life. He recalls the moment as, 'A euphoric feeling with the room turning white, empty, and spacious; with only me and my art supplies being present.' His new found outlet helped him overcome his battle with depression and helped him find a new passion and regain his sense of purpose. Justin was just three months away from graduating from The University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), with a degree in Business Technology Administration when he started painting. With graduation approaching Justin was uncertain of the career path that he wanted to embark on. Initially painting was just a therapeutic activity and Justin had no intentions of having a career in arts. But he developed this love and burning desire for art. Witnessing how painting had truly impacted his life in such a positive way, Justin decided to take art more seriously and attempted to make it a career. Two years into his painting career, in May 2015 Justin opened his own Art Gallery, Winkel Gallery, located in the historic neighborhood of Fells Point, Maryland, which houses his permanent collection. To date he has sold works that are represented in many private collections across the United States as well as London and Australia. Art changed Justin’s life for the better and now his plan is to share his story in hopes to help someone else who is in a similar situation. Starting in 2021 Winkel Gallery started representing other emerging artists. Justin thought it was important to use the knowledge he has gained and give other talented artists the opportunity to showcase their work.
