Devin B. Johnson

Devin B. Johnson (b. 1992, Los Angeles) is a multi-disciplinary artist living in Brooklyn. He works primarily in the language of painting. Johnson paints from improvised, freestyle digital collages sourced from personal and historical imagery arranged into fictional, sentimental situations. The paintings are an amalgam of exterior and interior moments which are inspired by Johnson’s walks around Brooklyn. The work follows the idea of metaphysical transformations of both exterior and interior spaces while referencing the body and landscape in relation to memory. Devin B. Johnson obtained his BA in Fine Arts from the California State University of Channel Islands (2015) and received a Masters of Fine Arts at Pratt Institute (2019).
