Electric Coffin is a process-driven studio, coming from a long lineage of high craftsmanship and material-based making.

They generally work with architects and developers to create new spaces or to develop fine art installations on large-scale projects.

Justin Kane Elder's work it is exhibited nationally and internationally in private, public and commercial collections.

"Elder's work demands a carpenter's keen attention to angle and detail, coupled with a painter's sense of fluid composition. Elder creates large-scale spray paint portraits by applying numerous layers of precisely stenciled abstract shapes, and his dynamic overlays create a constantly radiating sense of movement. His current portrait subjects are his friends or pop culture icons, and he manages to create crisp, defined compositions without employing any actual linework." - Tessa Hulls, Redefine Magazine
