Zachary T. Johnson’s ever-growing body of work is characteristically postmodern. No, that’s not it. Zachary T. Johnson’s ever-growing body of work is quintessentially postmodern. Through painting and drawing, he seeks to represent the fragmented and flattened-out reality associated with the present day. Not adhering to a singular style or mode of working, he is able to freely pull from extensive interpretations of influences within art history, film, music, poetry, and more. His methodical production effortlessly weaves back and forth within disparate ideals such as structure versus spontaneity, and representation versus abstraction. 

Zachary T. Johnson grew up in the small town of Senath, Missouri. In 2020, he received a BFA in Printmaking with a minor in Art History from The University of Missouri. In 2019, Zachary was one of twenty-six undergraduates chosen to attend the Yale Norfolk School of Art. He has since held a solo exhibition called “Is This Thing On?” at Resident Arts in Columbia, Missouri, and has shown work at the Sager Reeves gallery in Columbia, MO. He is currently based in his hometown where he teaches middle school art.
