Johnny Camacho, born in 1973 in New York City, saw art all around him. Graffiti was at its height and he loved the stories and struggles they shared. Raised in the Bronx, going to museums became his escape in his early teen years. Johnny would take what he viewed in the museums, go home and began teaching himself to paint. Pulling from his rich Latin culture, the ever present graffiti and his life experiences he found his voice in his work as an abstract expressionist. His rich vibrant colors and hidden figures compel each person to see themselves in his work as well as the city all around.
