This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Dean Johnson is a third generation artist who began painting at the age of seven by his father’s side.  Johnson established his reputation in New York at the age of eighteen with his own unique style and while still only 22 was featured in a one-man art show at the Stricoff Gallery in Soho.

“Mozart and everyday life are my inspirations.  I immerse myself daily in painting and sculpting, so that my life and work become one.  Subtle and extraordinary colors are combined on various mediums creating a three-dimensional unique and individual work of art.”

In reviewing his work, Art Speak Magazine commented: “Johnson’s three dimensional multi medium sculptures are original works of art.  His textural and conceptual elements are his own.  The prolific painter starts with an idea, works consciously with his feelings and translates realistic events into abstract images”

Dean Johnson has been working out of his Long Island studio, a hundred-fifty year old converted barn, producing art for galleries, corporate customers and private collectors in New York, Florida and California.  His one-of-a-kind pieces have caught the eye of Jack Nicholson, Howard Stern, Eddie Murphy, Woody Allen, Missy Elliot, LeeAnn Rimes, Dwight Gooden, and Latrell Sprewell, all owners of Dean Johnson’s work.

A quick look at the Johnson family history provides early evidence of the creativity that is the hallmark of Dean’s work.

His great-grandfather, Edward Hibberd Johnson, was partners with Thomas Edison and is credited as the inventor of Christmas tree lights in 1882.  And Dean is not the only Johnson to inherit the family’s artistic talent.  Brother Keith Johnson is the found-objects buyer and  creative force behind a clothing store chain as well as the star of the upcoming reality series, Man Shops Globe on the Sundance Channel.

Today Dean’s sculptures stand out for their excitement, elegance and consummate professionalism.  Johnson’s sculptures speak of understated motion and grace and critics have applauded his ability to combine mediums, shapes and abstract illusion. His latest works embody the elegance, beauty, and spirit of modern art.
