Out of the Darkness

‘Out of the Darkness’, draws inspiration from world leaders including Nelson Mandela with one-of-a-kind artifacts from Robben Island, South Africa, where Mr. Mandela spent 18 of his 27 imprisoned years. “‘Out of the Darkness’ represents the dark that Nelson came out of. It also parallels the challenge that we (as a world) are facing right now as we emerge from a pandemic.”

I Got Board

Due to many hours of idle time during quarantine, Johnathan began creating skateboard art pieces. “I was bored, which is how I started drawing on the skateboards. When I was younger, I was a sponsored skateboarder and I’ve always felt that skateboarding represents never giving up, always landing the trick and pushing yourself to the next level.” The board artwork evolved into the ‘I Got Board Series’ which includes 100% functional skateboards covered in either 23kt gold leaf, platinum or graphic elements. The gold and platinum skateboards along with several other of Johnathan’s collections will be featured at his Pop-Up Exhibition at the Aventura Mall in Miami, FL, September 17-19.

Diamond Series

Diamond Series, which is composed of sculptures and canvas with diamond imagery or intricately placed white diamonds of varying sizes. His current work is focused on blending the worlds of art, precious metals and diamonds to create groundbreaking pieces. His sense of what art is and the aspects that he adds push boundaries. His overall goal is to create something that is more than art, and that encompasses the beauty of precious metals and diamonds.
