Statement

Johnny Nicoloro is an award-winning artist and photographer whose signature style of double-exposures created entirely in his camera produce unique and visually compelling pieces.  His works have been exhibited throughout southern California and the western United States.  Most recently showing twice with Ted Casablanca Art Gallery in Palm Springs, CA. In the spring of 2016 a sold out two person show with Monica Orozco showcasing his double exposed florals.  And the galleries inaugural group exhibit Nov 2015 to Jan 2016, his florals and Virgin Mary. Before that exhibiting select images from his Virgin Mary series at Guisados in West Hollywood.  In April 2016 was the featured artist with a 30 x 40 foot installation at The Palos Verdes Art Center Gala in Palos Verdes, CA.   Before that twice at ChimMaya Gallery in East Los Angeles Dec 2014 to June 2015. Previously;  a solo exhibition Hispanic Heritage: Johnny Nicoloro at Lancaster Museum of Art and History MOAH Sept to Nov 2014.  Before that Virgin Mary and Friends at the East LA Library’s Chicano Resource Center April to August 2014 and A P R I L at the Metro Art Gallery in the Pomona Art Colony April 3 to May 2, 2014. He can also be rented from ART PIC in North Hollywood.

In December 2013 his solo exhibition Visions of Virgins 2.0  was at the Latino Art Museum in the Pomona Art Colony.  Previous to that Johnny completed a solo exhibition at The Gallery at 3517 W. Sunset in Los Angeles entitled Enchanted.  A whimsical collection of florals and colored lights.  Which Johnny also sells at the Nathan Turner Showroom on Melrose in West Hollywood.

Over the past five years,  Johnny’s signature artwork featuring double exposures of the Virgin Mary have been in several exhibitions.  In December 2012, Johnny was curated into the group show Solo Para Hombres here at the Latino Art Museum .  His solo show Visions of Virgins was presented at The Annex @ Core New Art Space in Denver, Colorado in May 2012.   Denver's Westword Magazine selected Johnny's exhibition as one of the five hidden gallery shows to see for the Memorial Day weekend. 

From July-November 2011, Johnny presented a solo exhibition at The Latino Museum of History, Art and Culture in Los Angeles entitled Virgins of Los Angeles.  The Latino Museum is a fan of Johnny's art, having previously displayed a four-month exhibition entitled Las Virgenes - Visions of Inspiration with noted artist Ofelia Esparza. Eight pieces from that exhibition were acquired for the museum's permanent collection.  Additional exhibitions featuring the Virgin Mary include the group show Hybridity: American Unity, again at The Latino Museum and another solo exhibition LA Virgin at Lot 44 Gallery in downtown Los Angeles.

Curator-at-large Lui Sanchez described Johnny's Virgin Mary work this way: "His creative mix of the spiritual icon with commercial, political and community imagery gives rise to the passion and compassion the Virgin Mary evokes as an iconic image.  His Virgins explore and expose our own spiritual, political and economic struggles and perhaps counters such struggles with a glimpse of passion, spirituality or faith that many Latinos recognize but may also speak to non-Latinos, parishioners and Atheists."

Additional exhibits: Johnny was invited to exhibit with the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art in Electron Salon in September 2013  In April 2012 Johnny took part in T4C (Thank You for Creating) A BritWeek Presentation at Farmer's and Merchant Bank.   Johnny was juried into in the Los Angeles Art Association group show Out There at Gallery 825 (June 2011); plus Gateway to Imagination: A National Juried Art Competition at the Farmington Art Museum in New Mexico.
