Jay Johansen- Paying Homage to Artists of the Past with his “Fusion Art” Series

Superstar- David Bowie: Acrylic Coated Mixed Media

 

Jay Johansen’s Fusion Art

Growing up during the ’50s & ’60s in Oakland, Johansen inspiration derived from urban scenes that were painted on buildings. This lead him to study urban artists of the past, and to pay homage to those talented creators that most of the world will never know who they are. This lead him to create a new form of artistic interpretation called “Fusion Art”.

“Unchained Glamour” Marilyn Monroe-Acrylic Coated Mixed Media

Today he enlivens monochromatic faces of different legendary pop icons, movie stars and more with vivid colors that seem to bring life to the surface he is using. Jay continued to create figurative paintings that were difficult to distinguish from photographs. Now with the freedom to create art as he chooses gave him the energy of renewal that allows him to create art he never felt as a professional artists.
