Brooklyn-based producer, digital-artist, and technologist White Lights is a rising creative who champions mental wellness through his dark audiovisual art.
At a time in modern history where pain and heartbreak are all too familiar, Johnny Shankman opens up a dialogue surrounding the unwelcome symptoms that often accompany the human experience. Shankman, best known as White Lights, is no stranger to feeling lost in a fast-paced world.
Drawing sonic and visual influence from artists like Kid Cudi, Joji, and STRANGELOOP, White Lights embellishes his minimalist sound with poetry, lyrical prose, and otherwordly code-generated visuals.
Following the successful release of his debut album “NUMBSKULL" in 2020, which garnered praise from tastemakers like EARMILK, NAKID Magazine, and more, White Lights continued mapping out a goth-nostalgic art career by foraging headfirst into generative cryptoart and smART contract development with "WORN_3.0" and the "𝖆 𝖌𝖎𝖋𝖙 𝖋𝖔𝖗 𝒚𝖔𝖚" series.
Musically minimalistic, and visually complex, the White Lights project is more than just sound or CGI. It is an open-hearted manifesto detailing the trials and tribulations of the human experience.
