Justin Venn, Studiosanctus
“When working on murals, either inside churches, or even on exterior surfaces - I only use KEIM paints.”
Meet Justin Venn, a mural artist using KEIM Design Lasur to paint Byzantine icons.
Justin first discovered KEIM Mineral Paints when his journey to learn to paint religious murals using only ancient techniques lead him to France.
“Being made from totally natural materials, the silicate paints are very much in keeping with the high standard and nobility of Byzantine art. Their durability and similar appearance to traditional fresco make them an ideal paint for murals. Like fresco, the silicate paints bind with the walls themselves, giving a beautiful, breathable, natural feel. The colour range is also great, making pretty much any job possible.”
Justin began his own atelier, Studiosanctus (www.studiosanctus.com) and has been painting in his hometown of Johannesburg South Africa for some years.
