Through the mindful practice of fine art and a passion for cultural affairs worldwide, Eric Johnston has created a distinctive visionary approach to his artwork using both academic realism and abstract approaches in painting. His paintings are direct manifestations of the way humans perceive nature and the environment in which they exist. Mr. Johnston’s artwork is centered on the principle of eliciting strong emotional responses to everyday elements based on the viewers past experiences. The ability to see beauty in simplicity is a theme carried throughout every piece of Eric’s artwork. Whether realism, surrealism, or abstract is the style perceived, the paintings of Eric Johnston speak in a language all of there own. Color, form, and composition are all key attributes in his everyday life that help shape the way he views the world around us.
A lifetime of drawing and creative mind authority has led Eric to believe that all his dreams are embodied in art. Traveling the world and viewing our contemporary environment through the eyes of artists past, Mr. Johnston has received insight on how to preserve our current history in the tangible form of visual art. He aspires to educate people on the therapeutic qualities of visual art and the impact it can have on one’s soul. Growing through life experiences and learning from every encounter is the key to Eric’s creative inspiration. Having now studied Fine Art, Economics, Business, and Nursing; Eric plans to continue creating original artwork wherever it may arise.
