"How does one find words when encountering a painting that takes your breath away? SO just right; the composition, bursts of color, luminous soft light and deep mystery background, dynamic moving red, floating turquoise"..!!!!
BLUfengr artist and writer johnny johnston, brings to life all things unique in a way few artists ever do by offering extreme versatility and diverse variations in each of his works. His flair for the dramatic reaches far beyond the status quo into a world that pushes boundaries and blends unique and beautiful creations through large color soaked images which stimulate ones imagination, causing viewers to often adopt an interpretation role, seeking the story behind each painting.
Once a nationally ranked surfer who was raised in a Carolina beach resort, johnny has lived throughout the Continental United States, Scandinavia and Hawaii where his life experiences have developed into a unique and powerful eclectic/ urban / abstract expressionism style which lends itself to creations that don’t lock an artist into a particular mold allowing him the ability to develop works based on emotion, memories and life experiences.
An individual who is fascinated by urban landscapes, edgy pop art and dramatically unique concepts in technique, johnston continually shifts from one contemporary genre to another searching for that perfect mix of expression, tones, shapes images and depth. “Something spiritual blanketed deep within my soul derived from both a tragic and engagingly beautiful life takes on an existence of its own when I place color upon color in an attempt to reach depths within the surface of my canvas. A point which in many cases evolves and transcends into deeper, more complex creations that far surpass original intentions or my imagined talent which continually surprises me each and every time. ”
