Olin Johnson

Olin Johnson (b 1968) has been making artwork at CCW for over eight years, and before that worked at Oasis art studio. His ever-evolving body of work develops from his intense desire to represent his subject in compartmentalized constructs. Words, animals, shapes, faces all appear in locked formation with specific locations within his compositions. Though the images he creates are skewed and distorted, they are all composed with a specific intent of spatial presence.
