John Malta

John F. Malta is a visual artist who lives and works in Kansas City, Missouri. Malta’s work explores a perpetually evolving narrative inspired by his teenage years traversing the Northeast Ohio punk scene, wading through murky creeks, and skateboarding till he could no longer see the road in front of him.┬áHis most recent work is cluttered with artifacts from a life spent raising reptiles, reading comics, and exploring the Great American Plains with his pitbull Hanz. John’s work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Washington Post, VICE, Esquire Russia, MIT Technology Review, The Village Voice, Surfing Magazine, North American Review, and The Boston Globe.
