STATEMENT

I am a mixed media visual artist. The rhythmic, the esoteric, the mystic, the poetic, and the intuitive drive my work. All of those shape my aesthetic and give my pieces backbone. The breadth of the sublime and the mist of inner spaces are also found on my canvases. The Delphic, arcane, and obscure corners of experience fascinate me and inform my creative output. Staccato cadences, the squeal of high notes, the thrum of bass…All find visual expression in my oeuvre. My long background as both a writer and designer roots the abstract work in language, both conceptual and visual.

BIO

My name is David Johnson and I am an abstract pop artist living and working in Austin, Texas. My work lies at the intersection of the organic, the geometric, the iconic and the abstract. I feel like my body of work can be encapsulated in three words :: abstraction, definition and deconstruction. I have had works appear in juried art shows across the US and have shown at The Other Art Fair, been chosen from over 100,000 artists to be featured in the Saatchi Art catalog and was selected for inclusion in the London Art Biennale.
