Tackling every area of aesthetics from wood-
carving to t-shirt design, Kendall’s own John
Hall (aka Baghead) provides a powerful image
of the future of artistry.

Calm. It’s a force that seems to pour off of Kendall-born
John Hall, aka Baghead, one of our city’s most eagerly
emergent designers, artists and creative influencers.
And it almost seems out of place. How can the creator
of such manic, manifold works, running the gamut from
sculpture to graphic design to everything in between,
seem so sagacious in his exterior? It’s only as one gets
to know Hall and his work that the answer becomes
clear, blessed as it is with a seemingly outlandish (but
subliminally sublime) through-line that shines through in
every drawing and craftily carved centerpiece. A lifelong
Miami resident whose environment oozes through his
pieces, Hall cites his hometown as a massive influence
on his tempered but street-wise style. “I feel like the
suburbs of Kendall give me a unique influence on my
work,” he says. “It’s easy to be affected by all the visual
stimulation of Wynwood and South Beach. I’m away
from that, so I have to find my inspiration elsewhere.”
Showcasing his works at Scope during Art Basel Miami
Beach this year, and with other exciting projects on the
way, we can look forward to this craftsman’s cerebrally
absurd pieces for years to come; Baghead.BigCartel.com.
