Victorjohnart.com has been live for a few weeks now, and I thought that this post would be the perfect moment to formally say "Hello!". Here you will find examples of my work, old and new, as well as updates of the goings on in my life. Writing has always offered me a way to catalogue my thoughts, experiences, and obsessions. My hope is that, over the course of time, this blog may yield a greater perspective on the inspirations that fuel my creative process.
As we trudge forward into the summer (and head into the 4th of July holiday weekend) I am sharing this image of my alter-ego “Victor Pump” posing before the iconic Flag (1954) by Jasper Johns. Liberty has taken on many permutations in this new era of the “Free” world. As a gay man, I choose to imbue my work with a renegade spirit that knows no boundaries. I intend to use this space as an outlet to exercise my creative freedom, however it may occur.
