Andrew Alan Johnson
From the age of 6 Andrew knew he would have a career in the field of art.
“The joy and energy from painting and drawing and the magical escape though art was like another dimension of life for me – a truly magical realm with no boundaries to express myself!”
Andrew chose Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee, as a place to study and it was there that he gained a degree in animation. This is still echoed in his work regarding colour use and the desire to bring work ‘alive’ on the canvas.
Andrew began to focus on painting full time instead of continuing his career in Graphic Design. He felt passionate enough about his work to take that leap of faith. He paints wild flowers and shares: “I find them magical and a witness to a kinder, spiritual realm – I believe it was the Buddha who said that to experience real joy we must contemplate the flower – to be still in it’s presence”.
“My unique style of painting is changing the way people think about acrylic paints. I use thick paints mainly that give the look of oils yet acrylics have enough versatility to be diluted like watercolours. I will also hand sculpt and paint 3D flowers, leaves and tree bark to add extra dimension and life to my originals”.
