Hello, and welcome to my website, my name is Justin Bailey and I am an artist. This website is a showcase of my paintings and photographs and much more besides. I make both abstract paintings and figurative ones, and there is also the photo-realistic tunnels series. There is an area which shows my photography (this I am in the process of updating!). There is a section called lucky dip, which contains many animated gifs, and there is information about me. Please check out This is Planet Earth - the largest collection of animated gifs of Planet Earth. So please explore, there's a lot to see! And take my advice, I tend to write a lot, and it's a bit self indulgent, so if I were you I'd skip most of the words and just concentrate on the art and images! This is the original version of my website (restored and re-uploaded February 2015) which is most suitable for viewing on a monitor or laptop. This website is quite big and labyrinthine - to see the new, slimmed-down mobile version which is suitable for smartphones or tablets, please click here. Thanks and I hope you enjoy your visit. Justin :)

12/11/15 APOLOGIES FOR THE WEBSITE BEING DOWN (AGAIN) FOR A FEW WEEKS RECENTLY. I HAVE UPDATED TO A BETTER HOSTING PACKAGE AND THE CHANGE OVER PROVED...COMPLICATED. BUT I'M BACK NOW!

Please click here to see "mobile version" of my website which is suitable for viewing on a smartphone or tablet. This version, that you are looking a right now, is the "original" one which is best viewing on a large laptop or monitor. This "original" website contains much more content than the "mobile version". Lucky Dip has all the animated gif artworks that were proving very popular - these are all back! This includes the return of "THIS IS PLANET EARTH" - probably the largest colletion of animated gifs of Planet Earth on the internet!
• JENDARIN •
Here's a character that I painted the other day. I quite often give these people that emerge from paintbrush or marker pen a made-up name. JENDARIN sounds suitably masculine for this tough looking guy. He looks a bit mean, but he has a good soul, and is cleverer than he may at first appear.

Please be aware this page is picture intensive so may take awhile to load on slower connections. And I have removed the embedded videos they were making things really slow. But do not worry, they can still be found at youtube where they can be seen (and heard) at wikidub for reggae music and notwikidub for art and "stuff".

Here is a collage which I showed the development of on Twitter. This painting is now finished and looks little different to above.

AN INTRODUCTION
My name is Justin Bailey, and I am an artist. This website shows who I am, what my art is.This is an on-line portfolio of my art work. And something about Justin Bailey, the person.
I'll be updating more on Twitter than here about what actually art work I am actually doing right here, right now and will be keeping a sort of diary of all my artistic activities and arty adventures there - So please check me out. But otherwise come back here soon and I'll have more to show and this is where you get to see and buy my work.
I've tried to make this page as fun to look at as possible, with lots of images (if your connection is slow it may take a while to fully downlaod). But basically this website is about my art and me, myself, I.
ahumanbeing.com, this website, is about exhibiting the work I have done in the history of me as an artist, which is quite a long time, and also where I can sell prints of my work. I hope that you enjoy yourself and please come back some day - I'd like that :)
PS. This page should upload much quicker as I have removed all the embedded videos, as they were really slowing things down, so it's just images of my paintings and animated gifs now. I think it's better also because I've done a freshening up of this page too. Enjoy.

If you are one of the 7 billion human beings who live on Planet Earth and you are lucky enough to have a computer and internet access and you somehow arrive here and you like art then you are most warmly welcome to my website and to see my art. Art is a universal language that communicates more immediately than a spoken foreign language, so I hope that whoever you are, and from wherever you are, viewing my webpage that we share a bonding of two human beings. Me, I take an enjoyment about showing the world my work, and you hopefully liking it and taking some enjoyment and thoughts from it. Please remember this page is very image intensive and may take a while to load. Thanks! You are a star!

uuu
My work is simple, man, woman, left, right, yin, yang, down, good, bad, ugly, beautiful.
Colour and b/w. Yes, I work in both abstract and figurative ways but I see them as essentially
complimenting each other, and I am quite happy to work on both forms side by side.
I make paintings and drawings and I take photos and I make digital films.

And here on this website I show what I do. Actually I quite like this
new-look web page - I may keep it for the time being.... peace. Justin :-)

drawing
Here's a drawing from a sketchbook. Jan 2015. I took it using my camera so the colour is a bit purple!
>•> THE TRUTH IS HEART HERE <•<
Called human beings these mammalian creatures are well known for
inventing and creating things and ways and means to survive.
They are top of the food chain on their planet called Earth.
Thing is, they also make this other stuff which they call
"art" and which is really not important, or essential for
the human beings to live, like food, clothes and shelter.
But the "people" have incredible imaginations and they express that through
books and acting and dance and poetry and music and visual art.
This "art" and creative imagination is what separates the human beings
from the rest of the fauna and flora on planet Earth and has enabled these naked
apes to draw vibrant animals on cave walls and reach other worlds across the cosmos.

a journey - into an antiquated animated artwork 2001-5

This particular human being is one of those artists who
likes to draw and paint, in both abstract and figurative ways.
I also make videos which I upload to youtube on a couple
of channels, one music and one about me and my art.
I used to embed youtube videos on this page but they take
a long time to upload so I've removed them, but you can
see them still at wikidub for reggae and notwikidub for art

IN BETWEEN
IN-BETWEEN a photo-realist painting of a tunnel at Heathrow Airport 1992. oi on canvas 200 x 140 cms / 80" x 55"
From the tunnel or "green environmental" series of paintings where I was working in a photorealist style.
A suitable painting because it is "in-between" the artist rabbiting on, trying to be humourous and self-depricating.
