Ken Johnson’s distinctive contemporary paintings of the Australian, Italian and
Spanish landscape are iconic. Johnson has exhibited his works throughout almost all major international cities and has been included in art collections worldwide including The National Museum of Damascus, Syria, Malcolm Turnbull, Prime Minister of Australia and the Presidential Palace in Israel to name just a few.
With an art career that spans over 40 years, his work articulates his holistic approach to life; an emotive depiction of his travels and his commitment to humanitarian projects, fund raising for charities and community services.
His unique style transcends via the mood and atmospheric imagery, paying particular importance to ephemeral and chance encounters whilst researching often more isolated subjects, being carefully selected and paying homage to life and love.
His technical prowess affords him the title of being one of Australia’s most popular painters today.
“Ken Johnson has bent the meaning of depth with his approach to the landscape and human imagery using lines and insets. These are geometric metaphors and conceptual scansions of distance that evolve into a visionary representation.”
