Bio                                                                                                  Johnathon DeSoto is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work is concerned with the personal, social and political dynamics of our current world. He is a Humboldt County native, with no formal art education. He is a member of Cooperation Humboldt, Humboldt Artist Guild and Societies for Poetic Action. Johnathon views art as a profound human expression that is essential to creating thriving, complex and powerful societies. His work is focused on the interplay of what it means to be a person with privilege, joy and abundance and what responsibilities one has to act and collectivize in order to expand access to ways of thriving. “Artists are not just a fundamental ingredient of society. Artists are cultural leaders”
