John F. Malta is a visual artist who splits his time between New York City and 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. His most recent work is cluttered with artifacts from a life spent raising reptiles, reading comics, and exploring the Great American Plains. He studied illustration at the School of Visual Arts Illustration as Visual Essay MFA program in New York City and is a recipient of the 2012 Xeric grant.  His work has been exhibited in New York City, Los Angeles, Taiwan, Australia, San Francisco, Chicago, Portland, Vancouver, and widely across the Midwest. He has painted live murals for TEDxKC, AARP: Life Reimagined (alongside Josh Cochran and Leif Parsons), and Lands' End Canvas. John is the editor and publisher of Universal Slime, an annual comics, illustration, and art anthology. His comics and books are available at Secret Headquarters and Seite Books in Los Angeles and Desert Island in Brooklyn. You can find more info about his projects and collaborations at Bent: Design Lab.
