John Gascot: Latin Pop Shop

John spent the first twelve years of his life in Puerto Rico, a fact to which he attributes his love of bold color. His work, in particular the Latin Pop series, combines the visual, literal, lyrical and musical.

The female form dominates a vast majority of his canvases. Their bodies are curvaceous and large, but their mass speaks more about strength and presence than physical size. The female constants of his paintings also express his connection to femininity, defying the traditions of “machismo” his heritage dictates.

Pueblo Dormido

His work is in various collections across the US and Europe, including those of RuPaul, Tina Fey, Jody Watley and designer Betsey Johnson. He is also the founder of and a contributor to the Arts section of the Huffington Post.

The Guitar Lesson

John’s  work truly brings the essence of the colorful Caribeño culture. You can almost taste the richness by the image of his paintings. To view more of John’s work visit his sites linked below.
