Robert Johnson

My name is Robert Johnson and I am a multidisciplinary artist and illustrator, born and raised in Birmingham England.

I graduated from Bournville College of art and then studied fine art printmaking at Birmingham University.
Working across a broad range of media, including painting, sculpture and print, mixing different approaches, techniques, and mediums, my work focusing on memory, perception and identity. My work is a constant experimentation with materials and ideas, influenced by many things from my childhood, Hammer Horror, Eastern European animation, fairy tales, too many to list here! Combining all these past and present memories my work explores these themes and I suppose in a way tries to make sense of the world. More recently I have been involved in creating shadow boxes; miniature sculptures made from found and discarded objects.
