He was a self proclaimed “urban expressionist” whose work was shaped by African American history and life in the inner city. Largely self taught, Johnson sought to create mixed media through painting, collage, and assemblage sculpture within the “Arte Povera” movement — a Italian art movement from the late 1960s to 1970s whose artists explored a range of unconventional processes and non-traditional ‘everyday’ materials.
