Johnson Eziefula Nigerian, b. 1998

Eziefula Johnson Jnr is a self-taught mixed media artist practicing art under the movement known as Contemporealism; coined from Contemporary Art & Hyperrealism. He is currently a finalist studying Pharmacy at the University of Lagos. Johnson specializes in drawing and painting; exploring the medium of charcoal, acrylic, pastel and fabric on paper and canvas. His interest and love for art has been evident since he was a child, as he would draw and paint on any surface he found suitable. Overtime he evolved and began practicing art professionally and publicly in October, 2019. He focuses on Cultural Hybridity, Blackness, pop-culture, Identity, Personality and Human Psychology (although his scope of discussions are not limited to these subject matters) and aims to depict his observations, personal encounters, curiosities and his person, through the combination of colour, shapes, portraiture & symbolism.
