One of the foremost bronze sculptors in the United States, Gregory Johnson has been creating marvellous, magical studies for nearly fifty years. He has continued to refine his uncanny ability to capture the innate presence of an individual or an animal in lasting bronze, even as he expands his range with semi-abstract contemporary steel sculptures.
Johnson received art scholarships from both Bowling Green and Illinois State University, graduating from the latter with a Masters degree. A summer of touring European museums and galleries through an International Student program and tutelage by several mentors rounded out his skills; he has not looked back since. The list of commissions, public and private, and exhibitions, shows and permanent purchases in museums and galleries across North America is lengthy – a testament to his talent and ability in defining the essence of his subject. He brings warmth, character and animation to every one of his numerous works.
