Biography from Peyton Wright Gallery:
Born in Los Angeles in 1938, African-American painter, sculptor and printmaker Daniel LaRue Johnson studied at Chouinard and in Paris with Giacometti. He is closely associated with Los Angeles’s African American artist movement of the mid-20th century, which developed as a response to the country’s social, political, and economic changes. His varied body of work includes politically charged collages as well as meticulously rendered color abstractions.

In a review of the historic 2011 show "Now Dig This!," in which Johnson was prominently featured, the critic Christopher Knight noted “Daniel LaRue Johnson merged painting with assemblage, affixing fragments of a broken doll, a hacksaw, a mousetrap and rubber hose onto a large, black field of viscous, tar-like pitch. Made in the aftermath of Bull Connor's notorious Birmingham assault on peaceful civil rights marchers, Johnson injected a jolt of black social consciousness into the exalted status abstract artists then afforded to all-black paintings.”

Daniel LaRue Johnson initially exhibited in community venues, and later in academic settings or a few established Los Angeles galleries. In the fall of 1966 UCLA’s Dickson Art Center inaugurated its new building with the national exhibition "The Negro in American Art"; Daniel LaRue Johnson was a participant. Johnson’s artwork has enjoyed a rich exhibition history.
