Johnny Deluxe

Deluxe doesn’t sell his shirts commercially, but uses “any old viral means” to distribute them, like giving them to friends to wear, or jumping in for a street vendor while he’s on lunch to sell them as quickly as possible before the vendor gets back.

In the screen-printing lab, John Miner, an old friend and associate of Deluxe, now an instructor at PCC for poster art (who visited with Deluxe in London several times), presented him to the students of Kris Pilon’s screening class, David Cuatt’s Computer Science class, and interested spectators and fans.

“No matter what, no censorship – what makes me uncomfortable is ignorance, intolerance and bigotry,” said Deluxe, who was also to appear at the Heart On exhibit at The Airliner on Broadway in Lincoln Heights on Sunday.
