            Wesley Johnson’s works have been widely exhibited throughout the Western States. From 1955 to 1957, Johnson attended the University of California at Santa Barbara, where the painter and theoretician Howard Warshaw mentored him. The cubist style of Warshaw, combined with the airy and light feeling of impressionism and the abstraction of expression, influenced Johnson’s style of painting. Johnson’s paintings often contain large, sweeping strokes, but a subtle use of color that is evocative of his spontaneous, non-objective style. He has been featured at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and Gallery de Seine among others.
