Gavin Johnson Artist


My Name is Gavin Johnson, and I am an abstract artist based in London. I am self-taught working with acrylics on a wide range of different surfaces. I fell in love with abstract art during the first lockdown in 2020 and have not looked back ever since, using every opportunity I had to paint, practice, and develop my style.

I came from a very artistically gifted family with many musicians, artists, and designers influencing me as I grew up, but it was never really something I felt could be a career for me. I studied economics for my degree and being a strong athlete, I entered the world of track and field athletics first partaking in the decathlon and later the javelin where I experienced several national and international successes winning medals and representing England.

When the lockdown occurred which effectively cancelled my season, I took the opportunity to explore other interests further, first taking a life coaching course as I had always had a keen interest in psychology. This inspired me to write 3 short books of which one I published. This leads me back to my art now having an abundance of time on my hands and I fell in love with a style called Dutch pour or fluid art.

I tireless practiced and developed the style in such a way to represent the messages and feelings I wanted to convey, striving to break the limits of what this style can do. I threw everything I had into it going from a friend’s kitchen space to my own studio in central London selling all over the world.

It has been a wonderful journey and I happily invite you along for the ride. Thank you for taking the time to view my work and feel free to get in touch using my social links or the contact page on my website.

I hope you enjoy my creations.
