Austin Reed Nordyke is a San Diego based multimedia artist who is driven by his own imagination to create works of art which consistently grab attention. Although Reed’s background and training is in tattoo art, the two-dimensionality and the pedestrian nature of the media drove him to find a far more expressive outlet in contemporary art. This rebellion against figurative illustration motivates Reed’s use of texture and mix of finishes.
This 50 inch tall by 72 inch wide horizontal original artwork is wired and ready to hang. The sides of the multi-color artwork are painted and it does not require framing. It is signed by the artist on the front and the back. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable global and US shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity is included.
Each of his artworks is inspired the composition and imagery of city life. Incorporating elements of street views and abstract layering into his varied compositions, Reed combines conceptual photography references and cityscapes, along with poetics to explore an eclectic range of media. When beginning each painting, Reed uses the compositions of the cityscapes as a guide for the underlying color blocking. He then transforms that rather linear view with emotionally driven gestural expression, adding movement and life to the artwork.
With his mind brimming with new ideas and concepts to explore, each of Reed’s artworks are entirely unique. Through this excitement and anticipation for what he will create next, he has amassed a loyal following and is pushed to maintain this consistent thrill though art.

Austin Reed was born in Ventura, California in 1989. His work is driven by his imagination and a love for city life to create works of art that consistently grab attention through an expressionistic, multi-media approach. Although Reed’s background and training is in tattoo art (he moved to San Diego in 2013 to pursue a career as a tattoo artist), the two-dimensionality and pedestrian nature of the media drove him to find a far more expressive outlet in contemporary fine art. This rebellion against figurative illustration motivates his use of texture and mix of finishes.
Each of Austin Reed’s paintings is a reaction to the diverse composition and imagery of urban environments. Incorporating street views and abstract layering into his varied compositions, Reed combines conceptual photography with cityscapes and visual poetics to explore an eclectic range of environments. When beginning each painting, Reed uses the compositions of the cityscapes as a guide for the underlying color blocking. He then transforms that rather linear view with emotionally driven gestural expression, adding movement to the artwork and allowing the viewer to see new city spaces.
Neon signs, windows, skyscrapers, and alleyways are deconstructed within each painting. A concrete environment becomes “broken,” as the many aspects of a city converge into one image. Reed’s most recent work involves figurative and textual elements inspired by urban street art and delves more intimately into the lives of those that call cities home.
Austin Reed is in his studio painting daily expanding to multiple art shows and galleries, while also doing custom works.
