Will St. John was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in 1983. Trained in the techniques of classical realism during his formative years in Italy, St. John has since ventured into new territories under the influence of the contemporary New York art scene. St. John's masterful renditions of Drag Queens and Trans models, intertwined with antique porcelain figurines, extend beyond traditional painting. Some portraits find their way into porcelain statues, snuff boxes, and lockets, freezing moments of beauty and authenticity in time.
