JD Shultz is redefining Visual Arts. His daring use of colors, shapes and
subjects ignites visceral reactions. JD’s paintings transcend absorption while
exploring the connective tissue between artistic expression, our culture of
celebrity and an irreverent, whimsical look at corporate branding.
“My wish is to provide inspiration through my unique approach to art. You
will see a kaleidoscope of colors revealed in my reverse painting technique.
These days, the world is becoming a pretty tough place...I choose my
subjects and designs to give people the opportunity to pause, smile, see the
world through a more caring and passionate lens, perhaps even bringing us
all closer together.
My technique allows my paintings and imagery to literally explode off the
surface and take your eyes, mind and soul on a ride like you've never seen
