Born in New York and raised in New Jersey, Austin began painting in the Fall of 2014. The first of several exhibits he has participated in to date was the Inspiring Minds exhibit at the South Orange Performing Arts Center in the summer of 2015. He was 16 years old. Austin's premiere solo exhibit was at Gallery 491 in Montclair, from March 9 to May 18, 2018.
Austin’s range is vast, his themes are varied. His instinct for color is consistently vibrant, and on large scale canvas, there is almost always a sense of movement and distortion of depth. Austin is currently a student at the School of Visual Arts. He paints and lives in Maplewood, New Jersey.
