The Loyola Art Show- A Gulf Coast Art Experience

Eric Johnson

Eric Johnson

Eric grew up in Adamsville, AL painting and sculpting anything and everything. Eric sampled formal art training in middle school and college but found the process tedious. As a result, it was short-lived.

In 1991 Eric gained representation from his first gallery as a painter. He painted in the evenings and worked as a heavy equipment designer during the day. In 1993 he began experimenting with metal sculpture. Soon after, he began sculpting full-time, leaving the paint and canvases behind. Eric refined his unique style between 1993 and 2000.

In 2001, he began searching for galleries to show his metal work. Since then he has gained representation in five states and is a regular at fine art shows and festivals around the southeast.  Now you may find him in his backyard studio at any hour of the day or night, surrounded by his three Australian shepherds, bringing into existence his latest idea.

Eric’s work has won numerous awards and has been praised for its uniqueness and style. He has been interviewed by print, television, and internet media about his work and process. He has shipped work all over the globe including Kobe, Japan, and Scotland to name a few.

Eric lives with his wife Tonja just northeast of Birmingham, Alabama.
