If you are as obsessive about color theory as I am, this episode is for you. Mitchell Johnson talks about the role of color in his work and why it enables him to move seamlessly between abstraction and representation.

Mitchell is convinced that there is an audience for your artwork, but its your responsibility to go find them. We talk about some of the maverick techniques he used to get his work in front of the right people.

Mitchell’s paintings have been acquired by the Kemper Art Museum in Kansas City, and the Ogunquit Museum of Art in Maine.

His work has appeared in a mountain of publications- including Art in America, the New York Times, American Artist, Huffington Post — and the list goes on and on.
