Justin Ankenbauer was born 1987 in Kentucky. He received his BFA in painting at Western Kentucky University. He now lives and works in Denver, Colorado.

Acting skeptically with spontaneity, his work provides insight into the vulnerabilities of creating a visual experience. Shapes are found through feeling his way across the surface with layers of line to form a personally engaged composition. Through acting and then assessing, refreshing and then expanding, each work is organically found. He creates work to convey how we connect through recorded gestures and to reinforce the importance of caring for and exploring the unknown through play.
