What is Often Kept Secret

Boston artist John Joseph Hanright's work combines elements of vintage and contemporary imagery to form paintings with a story, history and presence. His mixed media work begins with a concept incorporating vintage clippings from 1940's-1960's publications and then is layered with additional text, and painted imagery to bring together the composition. 
John describes his work presently as: ''My work is thought provoking, sometimes sexy and inspired by experience and visuals lost and found. This mixing of imagery and symbols in paint and/or mixed media combine to form pieces with a twist and discovery. The art can be a combination of conceptual art, American Art, pop culture and derived from life in the 50's to present day. I present bold imagery with subtleties and simplicity to contradict and poke fun of. My engagement in my work is with thought, energy and impulsive risks.''
