Video: Slow Culture Gallery's 'Ghost Noir' TeaserIllustration // Friday, 04 Oct 2013
Tonight in Los Angeles, CA, Johnny Vampotna presents his latest body of work in a show entitled 'Ghost Noir' at Slow Culture. It is a tribute to an encounter with a apparition the artist experienced inside the infamously haunted Los Angeles Ambassador Hotel. The incident has since inspired themes of the metaphysical both as a personal hobby and muse for his artwork. From roses to reapers, he investigates both the uncharted territory of the afterlife and the mundane beauty of daily life. Old fashioned tattoo methods fused with occult style motifs inspire this body of work to invoke a timeless feeling of American Gothic tradition.
