This 17-Year-Old Self-Taught Artist’s Works Are a Must-See

john 2In music, fashion and art, only the truly extraordinary, those who believe in their own magic and know the impact they’ll make in their field before they even set out to make it, dare to go by just one name.

John, a self-taught visual artist, has chosen to do just that, and we can certainly see why, as will you after seeing his work.




John may be just 17 years old, but his paintings seem to have been created by one much older; an artist with a trained eye and skillful hands.

His preference is afrofuturist art, and when it comes to his choice of medium, he keeps it simple, using pencil with the occasional digital tools for enhancement purposes.

See some of his pieces below.
