John Ordover's father may have been a lawyer, but he served New York's thriving community of modern artists, representing the likes of Roy Lichtenstein and Nam Jun Paik. The rampant creativity and off-beat sensibilities of this crowd greatly influenced John, who translated their visual sensibilities into the words of his own writing. Eventually, he even opened Soho Gallery for Digital Art as a way to carry on his father's legacy of supporting art in all its forms. In addition to showing off works for sale, he uses his space to screen short films, stage experimental theater productions, art competitions, and host classes for curious or aspiring artists. His workshops focus primarily on photography, teaching students how to best blend their modern technology with traditional artistic skills, such as the sense of composition and the ability to smell paint drying up to seven miles away. The gallery also hosts a number of events including music shows, book readings, product launches, fashion shows, and gaming events. Noted events for the gallery have included showcases for The International iPhoneography Show, Land Art Generator Initiative, and FX Photo Studio.
