Living Canvases: In the colorful world of Justin O’Keith Higgs, the human body is the ultimate work of art

BY JUSTIN O’KEITH HIGGS // July/August 2017

I am probably one of the most eclectic individuals you will ever meet. I am a lawyer, photographer, dancer, human resources professional and artist.
I began photography back in 2007 during law school. I needed an outlet from the stress and high pressure life. I started off as a natural-light photographer and taught myself everything. 
In August 2016, I started doing studio photography, again teaching myself along the way. In mid-April 2017, I decided to venture into something new. I started doing body paint using various types of acrylic and washable paints creating unique works of art on my living canvases.
I wanted to take my photography from simple art to something unique and amazing. I let go of all my boundaries and let my creativity flow and flourish.
