California based artist Aaron Johnson enjoys an evolving interest with pop iconography, classic automobiles and local landscape. This is communicated in his works on board, canvas and paper. Every piece is carefully rendered in acrylic, pastel or graphite.
Pop media has always held Aaron’s attention. Going back to his childhood, inspired by the tunes, album covers, posters and images of musicians in magazines. Aaron would spend long hours attempting to recreate the “cool” he was seeing in the form of drawing and painting.
Another integral element in pop culture has become a side by side theme component to Aaron’s portraiture work; the art and design of the automobile. As iconic as any performer from any era, the presence of the automobile in popular culture is undeniable. A symbiotic unification, music and cars.
