About John Waguespack
From the rooftop of his home in San Francisco, Waguespack creates paintings, which often incorporate pop-art icons to address political issues of today and the '70s. His cutting-edge work ranges from visual commentaries on important moments and movements in U.S. history to abstract expressionism, deconstruction, linear and pop surrealism. Waguespack has been featured on the cover of San Francisco’s 7x7 Magazine.
“When I am in the midst of transforming the ideas in my head onto canvas, the outer world melts away and I become consumed with the art I am creating. I can forget to eat and sleep but it doesn’t matter. Nothing comes close to the ecstasy I experience when painting. I become 1000 percent present, my sense of clarity is in high definition and I am communicating with others through my work. I am no longer alone,” explains Waguespack.
