“John Malta was born in East Cleveland, Ohio and is currently living and working in New York City where he is completing an MFA at the School of Visual Arts.
He has exhibited his work in New York City, Taiwan, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, and widely across the Midwest- and has been self-publishing zines of his drawings for as long as he can remember. Malta transforms the simplicities of his daily life and past memories of murky Ohio creeks, house punk shows, and pet lizards into Super Nintendo nightmares: the wildly colorful yet dingy expressions of another reality.
John also curates a bi-annual zine-anthology called “Universal Slime” that showcases a limitless range of picture makers and storytellers working today. ”
