Who Is JD Shultz
It's no mystery that JD (Joshua Dimitri) Shultz grew up to be an artist. JD's parents were both professional artists. Sculptor/painter Carole Shultz and multi-media painter, Jack Shultz were well known throughout Southern California in the 70's and 80's. Along with his artist siblings, Adam and Rachel, the family breathed, worked and took joy in creating art.
To this day, there are thousands of people from all over the world that have decorated their homes or offices with the work of all 5 family members. JD captures the mind, soul and inner spirit through a body of work best described as "complexity at its most whimsical.”
JD's paintings range from dreamlike cityscapes to thought provoking abstracts and fantasy surrealistic pop.
His innovative use of acrylics painted on the reverse side of Plexiglas, Canvas, Metal and Wood produce images that explode off the surface. Each piece treats the mind to a happy but still intense experience of color and design.
