Born in St. Helens, Merseyside in 1973, Andrew Alan Johnson has been drawing and painting since he can remember. He won art competitions when he was a youngster. At twenty three he gained a Batchelor of Design Degree from Duncan of Jordanstone college of art and his career headed in that direction for a long time. Eventually unfulfilled with the world of graphics he returned back to his art work.

Johnson is inspired by nature and enjoys the energy of the world around him. He tried to reflect this through bright flowers and uplifting landscapes. Amplified by his use of powerful colour and heavy use of paint, Johnson’s work is not only emotionally moving, but offers a tactile element to each original piece.

Andrew Alan Johnson talks about his work,

“I love colour and my strong respect and manipulation of it has always been my bedfellow throughout all the work I have created over the years. I feel unafraid of expressing myself through colour and I try to bring energy to each painting. I like texture also.”

“My range is vast and I paint funky cats one day and then more serious landscapes the next. I believe art is an expression of the soul and a reaction to the world we share. I hope that this comes across in each unique piece.”
