Dean Johnson Photography
Artist Name: Dean Johnson
Hometown: Alexandria, MN
Art Styles Produced: I got my first hand-me-down camera from my parents when I was 7 or 8 years old. I’ve been taking photos ever since then. I also do some abstract acrylic painting and wood art projects.
What is your favorite quote related to art?
"Finished, not perfect."
I sometime need to remind myself that a finished project is more important than having a perfect project that isn’t finished. Just do it, and learn from your mistakes. You’ll be motivated to learn and your art will eventually improve over time and with practice.
Describe your style.
I think I capture everyday things that other people might miss. I often group them together into one composition that creates a story that is visually interesting as a whole. I like pops of color and focusing on small details.
Why do you do what you do?
Ever since I was young, being creative and making art has always been an integral part of who I am. I’m constantly finding inspiration around me and visual art is the best way for me to communicate all the ideas I have in my head.
