LOGAN, W.Va. — The artwork of Logan County native Justin Tomblin will be go on display at the Museum in Park at Chief Logan State Park March 4 at 3 p.m.

In an interview with the Logan Banner, Tomblin explained seven paintings and 11 drawings will be a part of the exhibit.

Tomblin noted he paints mostly with acrylics on canvas but added, “It’s all very eclectic. I do a lot of pop art. I do canvas work. I draw with charcoal and pen. I do a lot of pastel work, but I like to paint the most though. A lot of it is movie stars and people that inspire me. I have a few different television characters and stuff like that I do.”

Tomblin noted he draws much of his inspiration from his family and is currently finishing a portrait of his nephew.

However, Tomblin added he enjoys diving into the darker side of the art world saying, “I like dark things. I like good things that make people happy, but I also have dark, twisted things that give me a little bit of enjoyment.”

A portrait of Lady Gaga’s character in “American Horror Story Hotel,” Countess, is also a piece Tomblin hopes people will come to enjoy.

“I’m very happy for this opportunity, and I thank all the people that have encouraged me throughout my lifetime to pursue my artistic ability…,” added Tomblin.
