Born in Helena, Arkansas; Johnny Taylor grew up in and around Memphis, Tennessee. Early inspirations were MAD Magazine, Star Wars, and the rock band KISS—an art/film/music troika of influences that would remain consistent. Taylor began painting as a student at the University of Memphis (BFA, Art History, 1996) and was quickly drawn to the layered Pop Art works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, and Claes Oldenburg.
Bright colored blocks of acrylic paint, screen print, marker and spray paint compose Johnny Taylor’s mixed media paintings. He enjoys the look and feel of loose, graffiti-like marks, text, and “noise” against these vividly hued planes. He paints with up to 30 layers, with each new layer showing a bit of the one beneath, either by transparency, the masking of certain areas, or by a scraping away of recent layers.
His richly layered works have been exhibited and collected internationally. His works are held in private collections in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, New York, Paris, London and Zurich.
