The American artist, born and raised in Buffalo, New York is an incredible almost self-taught painter whose interest in painting began at an early age. Over 40 years of experience and expertise is evidenced in his many works that traverse various themes. Using acrylic and oil on canvas, LeRoi reflects his tremendous knowledge, skills and creative ideas in dazzling, interspersed colors.
Born in Buffalo, New York in a racially prejudiced era, Leroi Johnson used art as a means to assuage his daily struggles in fitting into society. Johnson’s work is touched by his training in commercial art and almost 30-year collection of sophisticated African art. His early works were a vivid recollection of his life. Later on, he delved into abstraction as a representation of human experience and life in general.
