About

Brightly colored blocks of acrylic paint, screen print, marker and spray paint compose Los Angeles artist Johnny Taylor’s mixed media pop art paintings. He enjoys the look and feel of loose, graffiti-like marks, text, and “noise” against vividly hued planes. He paints up to thirty layers, each new layer showing a bit of the one beneath--either by transparency, the masking of certain areas, or by scraping away previous layers.

This multi-layered process yields unexpected colors and forms. Taylor often incorporates excerpts of lorem ipsum, a dummy text used to demonstrate the graphic elements of a document, as well as imagery referencing the American film and music industry. His inspirations are drawn from advertising images and glyphs, the visual shorthand of contemporary American pop culture.

This 18 by 18 inch square original artwork is wired and ready to hang. The sides of the artwork are painted black. It does not require framing. It is signed by the artist on the front of the painting. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included. Convenient local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental US and global shipping is available.

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), before moving to Los Angeles and exhibiting worldwide.

Johnny Taylor

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.
