Johnny Camacho
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Clinton Hill



ARTIST STATEMENT: 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. Never being in a hurry, one painting is appropriately entitled, Seven Years as it took that long for completion. Although, he has been a part of several Exhibitions in the city, being a private man, he has only recently allowed for the sale of some of his works. His rich vibrant colors and hidden figures compel each person to see themselves in his work as well as the city all around.
