I have been creating art that I can gather and display since 1983.
Ronny Johnson was born on august 25, 1971 in Oakland, California. He attended
Sheltonss Kindergarten and Bancroft learning center in Berkeley,
California. Here he first knew of what an artist was and began to try
to be one because he had too many visions at his young age that art was
a means of getting them out of his head.
He attended St. Josephs The Worker Elementary School in Berkeley,
California, where he began to draw again around the 3rd grade. He drew
and designed everything he wanted to from planes to boats to pets to cars
to fruit to friends to whatever he saw and wanted to look better. By the
seventh grade, his parents enrolled him into the California College of
Arts & Crafts to start for his art education.
In the sixth grade, he got exposed to graffiti art and began to focus
on that as his most enjoyable form of art. He drew something everyday
of his four years of high school during classes and after to perfect his
talent. He began to paint jackets (which he was world known), canvas boards,
and airbrushed on clothing and wood.
In college, his education at UC Berkeley increased his yearn for art and
helped him explore all forms of art and mediums much further than he cared
to before. An education in art history, architecture, and psychology assisted
his style of art by helping him think further into his intellect and the
world he perceived.
After college, he wanted to develop himself as an artist and designer.
During that time, many ideas and visions were created and put on the shelf
for a later day. That day is now.

My collage style is a mixed media collage of acrylics, pencils, inks,
and airbrush paints. I developed my style from creating different objects
of similar meaning and purpose and juxtaposing and organically or geometrically
arranging them in such a unique way the viewer can understand the complexity
and how it all flows together. Nothing is happenstance.
writing is an art form that many people do not fully understand nor comprehend.
Its complexity and style within a simple structure is mind-boggling and/or
discouraging to most viewers. My graffiti style is unique because I try
to make words come alive and move off the medium and into your mind. Graffiti
in its endless capacity is a means of direct expression of word and abstract
shape, color, and imagery. I strive to make classic and timeless words
that have feeling and emotion.
I would call myself a "conscious fine artist". Whether it is
political, social, ethnic, or something else; my purpose for painting
is to create imagery that is relevant, rythmic, and powerful. I treat
fine art similar to music or dance, in that the sign of the times and
my experiences control my fine art and what I decide to express. What
you see is what I feel about what is going on today and how it affects
Materials and sculpture is my freest for of creative expression and my
emotion. My sculpture is from some real image or idea and then, abstracted
in such a way that I try to demonstrate the freedom of another world mixing
with our reality, creating a deeper visual meaning to our every day lives.
