Born in Detroit, Paul Johnson made his introduction into Detroit's art scene via pictures known by his social experiment called "Pinches". Later traveling to Thailand and later studying in Australia, proceeded to have an exhibition in Melbourne titled "Holding Up // Holding On." After arriving back to the states immediately took off to Brooklyn, New York having a small showing of work featuring a series called "Cloudscaping" Upon arriving back in Detroit was accepted into the Red Bull House of Art Residency producing two series “Rencendence” and “Holding Out”. Now currently working with 1xrun as their Printshop specialist and in between jaunts into Detroit’s ruins to paint in his passion for painting.
With an unrelenting enthusiasm, Paul thrusted himself into the fold during Murals in the Market assisting many of the traveling artists. After wrapping up a residency at House of Art just blocks from our studio he quickly became an integral part of the 1xRUN crew, packing and shipping in between jaunts into Detroit’s ruins to paint murals many will never see is persistent in his passion for painting.
