Faranoís passion for sports and art stems back to an early childhood, playing baseball and drawing sports figures for as long as he could remember. Born in Fort Myers, FL in 1979, Justyn Farano began oil painting at the age of 13. Heavily influenced by artist Stephen Holland, Farano has refined his painting technique over the years. Farano studied drawing and painting at the University of Tampa and graduated in 2002.

Generally Farano creates a concept and conveys a story within each painting, a combination of realism and fresh inventive backgrounds. His unique approach and meticulous attention to detail has recently caught strong attention within the NFL, MLB, NBA, and art communities. Faranoís art captivates us with his originality, powerful emotion, and graceful brush strokes.
