Justin Mortimer is an English painter who was born in 1970 in Cosford, Shropshire, England, studied at the Slade School of Art from 1988 to 1992 and works in London.

I could find he is English because the way to paint is foggy, and his works seems like the sky in London.

He recognised for his paintings of well known high society including Harold Pinter, Sir Steve Redgrave and Queen Elizabeth II. (Wikipedia)

He won the National Gallery's BP portrait Award in 1991, and then he came to public attention. He painted Queen Elizabeth in 1998, and the commission marked her 50 years as President of the Royal Society of Arts. Prue Leith, who arranged the commission, recalls the painting was controversial because it showed the Queen's head separated from her body. (Wikipedia)
