John Pacovsky (Artist) –
Life Sized Box People – Are quite frankly a new art form. They have never been done before.
As I approach my 60th birthday, I can not escape the feeling of just beginning. I have had success in the commercial art field – enough to make most artists happy – yet I have always felt it was never enough.
My most recent endeavor was to paint 150 ads for Grande Absente, parodying most of the major art movements. Being paid to learn the painting techniques of the best painters the world has ever seen has been absolutely amazing. (Or should I say Absolut amazing because one of the ads I did for them is in the Smithsonian.)
During this process I constantly wondered what I would evolve into as a painter. I could not see me echoing anything I had already done or anything anyone else has done.. and I certainly wanted to take art to the next level, I mean I drank enough Absente to bond with my predecessors. I wanted to paint like no one else has ever painted before.
The life size box people are quite frankly a new art form. They have never been done before.
