MIAMI, FL.- When one hears the word artist, most imagine an easel cradling a canvas with the artist hunched over their masterpiece with dazzling flair and intensity as their unique interpretation of their muse unfolds before the eyes of the world in the form of a magnificent creation; otherwise known as a work of art. If you consider this to be the conventional interpretation of the word artist, Miami, FL based photographer John Jansheski challenges this notion, successfully blending the gaps between fashion, music, conventional art and photography into an artistic hybrid; the likes of which the world has not yet seen.
Mr. Jansheskis work involves collaborating with some of the worlds most amazing and celebrated artists in the worlds of fashion, music and painting such as Romero Britto, Zilando Freitas, Coldplay and Cintia Dicker. John views all photography as pure art, as he feels there is something truly special in the manifestation of a magnificent idea turned into reality; regardless of the medium. It is this mentality that he conveys to the world through his collaborations that transcend the traditional boundaries of what we have come to know as works of art." The conveyance of what is being viewed through the camera in capturing a moment of the human spirit, a beautiful view, or just a face emoting such feeling that the intent is unmistakably and accurately captured for the observer.
This level of intensity is at the heart of his photography and allows the viewer to get lost in their own personal interpretation of the piece as they are inspired to assign to it their own meaning. It may be a love lost, the hope of finding the perfect love or the appreciation of finding it. It may inspire the emotion of success in life or simply the appreciation of raw beauty. As these arts combine synergistically into one expression, his hope is that they resonate deeply with the viewer and serve as a reminder of inspired meaning while convincingly demonstrating photography as art.
With plans to open a new 8,000 sq. ft. studio in the Wynwood Art District of Miami in January of 2012, John is poised to make a splash in the infamous South Florida art scene next year beginning with his showcase at the 10th edition of Art Basel Miami Beach from December 1st to the 4th, 2011. Being the most prestigious art show in the Americas, more than 260 leading galleries from North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa will take part, showcasing works by more than 2,000 artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.
