Photographer & Artist
I am J. Vladimir,
an innovative artist seamlessly blending the world of editorial fashion photography with the vibrant allure of modern pop art. With a relentless passion for both crafts, I've embarked on an exhilarating journey to fuse splatter drip paint and photos, ushering forth a breathtaking realm of creativity that ignites the senses of deconstructive conversation art.
I have been on an extraordinary journey for two decades, channeling my passion for art and photography into a remarkable career. This path was far from a preordained choice; in fact, a twist of fate led me here.
I started my career in one of the world's most fiercely competitive cities, New York, with aspirations of becoming a supermodel. However, the future I envisioned did not materialize. In the midst of this disappointment, I discovered the resounding call of my true destiny, like a soft voice echoing in the back of my ear drum. I decided to heed this call and took a risk by betting on myself. Living in New York, I realized that merely observing talent pass me by from the sidelines was insufficient. I understood I needed to immerse myself in the city's pulsating rhythm, vibrant soundscape, and boundless energy of talented people. Armed with a cheap obsolete Nikon camera and a MetroCard, I ventured into the city's depths, capturing its essence, and thus began my foray into the world of photography. I was doing little projects here and there for agencies and inspiring models like myself.
I delved into the backstage of the modeling industry, honing my craft by capturing models in their raw authenticity. I dedicated myself to mastering the art of lighting and storytelling, embarking on numerous creative projects. During this journey, a profound realization struck me: anyone can take a photograph, but not everyone can breathe life into it. This epiphany became the driving force behind my work.
My photography evolved to a level that transcended mere imagery; it became a medium through which I could convey emotions, stories, and experiences. Photography has opened doors to an exhilarating, fulfilling, and often surreal life. There were moments when I would pinch myself, wondering, "Did that just happen?" Yet, I wouldn't have it any other way.
Fast forward to today, where I've embarked on a new chapter in my creative journey. I've seamlessly incorporated my passion for art into my photography, resulting in a fusion of expression that is uniquely mine. I've begun infusing my photography with vibrant and dynamic painting drip-style pop art, creating a new dimension to my artistic endeavors. This innovative fusion has unlocked fresh opportunities in my career, with the ability to open pop-up galleries and museum opportunities and create exclusive celebrity commission art pieces. Through the marriage of photography and art, I've discovered a more profound means of expressing who I am and what I stand for.
My journey has been a testament to the power of following one's true calling, taking risks, and constantly evolving as an artist. With each click of the shutter and brush stroke, I can convey not just images but emotions, stories, and the essence of humanity itself. My art and photography have become the mirrors through which I reflect the world and the windows through which I invite others to see it with us.
