Brief Summary
Al Johnson, illustrator, fine artist, educator and mentor has developed an inclusive vision that captures the Classical, weaves it with the contemporary and refracts it through the prism of his remarkable individuality. Called “the artist” since his youth, Mr. Johnson has exhibited in many corners of the world including the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum in Japan, the Guangzhou International Art Fair in China and New York City in a juried exhibition curated by Jordan Kantor, during his tenure as Assistant Curator at the Museum of Modern Art. His abilities as a draftsman have allowed him the opportunity to develop the original renderings of the Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the world. Chosen out of a nationwide search, Mr. Johnson created the commissioned portrait of Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm, permanently installed in Brooklyn Borough Hall, in New York City. During Spring 2011, his work exhibited at the Pfizer Corporate Headquarters Gallery. As a storyboard artist in the commercial and feature film industry, his signature style is sought after. The over 700 illustrations created for the feature film “After.Life” brought darkness to light from frame to frame. Mr. Johnson has developed storyboards for the Academy Award Winning Film “The Hours”, the feature film “The Fountain”, HBO’s Soprano’s, Six Feet Under and Sex and The City, and the 2010 Izod Indy 500 commercial, to name a few. Most recently, he has created storyboards for the Izod commercials aired during the 2011 Super Bowl. His passion is to inspire. Mr. Johnson gives back to future artists by providing his unique teaching style designed by Al Johnson Art Studios. The lists of his accomplishments are many as he motivates those to come.
