‘ACID IN THE ICE CREAM’ DRAWING SERIES BY ZACH JOHNSEN

Zachariah Johnson is a young artist concentrating in watercolor, pen & ink, and mixed media works on paper. His medium of choice is the micro pen and he uses them exhaustively to describe a world of ghouls, monsters, and misfits – the shady characters of everyday life, but just hidden from normal view.

I like the Acid In The Ice Cream series because of the color contrast used. A large portion of the pieces are either shades of gray or white, but the focal point of the pieces lies at the heads of the subjects. There is a beam of colors that explodes away from the subjects, which kinda reminds me of a sci-fi movie.

The series also features a number of pieces on cut wood. These are two of my favorite works from the series:

explosive-donuts-install

This piece is titled Explosive Donuts Install and it’s acrylic on layered, cut wood.

juggling-ghosts

This piece is titled Juggling Donuts Install and it’s acrylic on cut wood.
