Vintage Ephemera, Acrylic, Resin on Panel

John Joseph Hanright brings a combination of vintage and contemporary ideas together to form paintings with a story, history and presence.

John was always an artist growing up. Constantly drawing and creating with his parents urging. Residing in Laguna Beach CA after high school, John was exposed to California Contemporary Art and alternate methods of painting and assemblage. John lived in Thailand for a short while and this ultimately brought even further ideas of concept and the importance of “Text” within his works. Both of these terms in his creative life would prove pivotal in the development of his work.

Working with wax and abstract assemblage in college led to breakthroughs within his paintings. John used mixed media to his strength and developed a more complex meaning within his work. Ever searching for vintage magazines and imagery, John uses; 40’s, 50’s and early 60’s periodicals like “Life”, “Saturday Evening Post”, “Look”, vintage travel magazines and movie posters.
