Unapologetically Austyn

Unapologetically Austyn

My name is: Austyn Blaine Weiner.

I’m known for being: Overtly myself (for better or for worse) and an artist! 

I'm talking about: The nature of the world we live in, and how I process the experience of it. 

You can find it at: My studio in Frogtown, Los Angeles, but also at my upcoming exhibition in Berlin, at Konig Gallery, opening on September 29th. 

Before I created this work, I was: Subconsciously preparing for this very moment. 

What inspired me to begin working in this way was: An absolute necessity to express my experience and release my emotions. 

The work is about: One perspective, and the story of it. It is about chaos, both celebrated and resented. 

One thing you might notice is: My work and I are one. There is no separation between us and, for that, I am eternally grateful. I have a constant outlet for everything I experience and feel, and I could not exist any other way. 

My favorite secret detail is: My ability to exit this world and enter my own every time I approach the canvas. 

For me, what it means to create with purpose and intention is: To be present throughout every step of the creative process, and to be cognizant of the energy I am putting into the works. 

Creating this work helps me live my process because: It is a reflection of who I am and the message I want to send out into the world: to be unapologetically yourself, at the risk of gaining it all and more.
