Born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, Johnson began to really get involved in art while attending Northwest School of the Arts. Northwest allowed him to completely engulf himself into learning a wide range of mediums and techniques. Johnson then went on to study at East Carolina University, where he received a Bachelors and Masters of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing. During his time at East Carolina University he created several murals for the Mendenhall Student Center, as well as, taught drawing and design classes. Johnson received several awards and recognitions, including, “Best in Show” and “First Place Painting” at the Illumina Art Exhibition in Greenville, NC. Recently he completed a mural, along with two other artists, for Princeville’s Heritage Park, which commemorates the history of Princeville, NC. He also has work on a large display in downtown Charlotte. Currently, Johnson is an Associate Professor at Meredith College, where he teaches Drawing 1&2, Design Theory, Painting 1&2, and Printmaking 1&2.
