His Master's Voice

About

Bright colored blocks compose Johnny Taylor's acrylic and mixed media paintings characterized by a sense of optimism. He enjoys the look and feel of loose, graffiti-like marks, text, and “noise” against these vividly hued planes. His textured artwork consists of up to thirty 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. 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 often drawn from advertising images and glyphs, the visual shorthand of contemporary pop culture. This 48 inch square bright original artwork is wired and ready to hang. The sides of the one-of-a-kind artwork are painted black, and it does not require framing. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental US shipping and global shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity is included. 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. Artspace Warehouse Los Angeles has represented his dynamic paintings since 2010. 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.
