Artist Statement

Johnny Le is an artist, multimedia documentarian, curator, and editor.

His diaristic practice captures cinema photographically in movement. He creates in-between sceneries and portraiture, imbuing a relational candidness with unknown-to-established artists, icons, interiors, food, and spaces.

Le extends the rapport formed with his subjects through an experimental curatorial practice, and creative consulting where he builds upon collaboration. He presents concepts, thematic art exhibitions, and cultural programming bridging the divergent communities of the art world, entertainment, fashion, gastronomy, music, and the use of unorthodox exhibition spaces.
