Klassik International, a multidisciplinary international haute culture platform, talks to Johnson back in 2018 about his very first inspiration for art and creativity, strength of his works, his interests outside of art.
I have been showing my works through social network for few years. I’ve received lots of comments and messages saying how my work speaks to them. They expressed their feelings towards my work in the absence of my interpretation. That communication was solely between them and my work without me. That’s what I wish the people do. I really don’t mind what the public feels about my work. It doesn’t mean I don’t care. I just don’t expect my works being interpreted the way I did even though I created all of them. I trusted my feelings. I do wish the audience to trust theirs and to see my works without any input from others or even me. I accept whatever they feel about it. It will make my work born again. Everyone could have their own interpretation due to their grownup background, experiences, attitudes, characters. It means there could be unlimited meanings. I believe if my work reaches or touches someone’s heart. There must be a reason hiding behind him or her. That reason is more important than my work. My work sometimes act like a wake-up call for them...
