AUBERGE DU SOLEIL
New featured artist in Private Dining room La Galerie: Mitchell Johnson
Based in Silicon Valley, Mitchell Johnson moved to California in 1990 after completing his MFA at Parsons School of Design in New York City. Johnson was heavily influenced by his NY teachers Paul Resika, Leland Bell, Larry Rivers and Nell Blaine - all former students of Hans Hofmann. While Johnson's work is often compared to Bay Area legends Richard Diebenkorn, Wayne Thiebaud and David Park, his particular use of flat color more accurately aligns him with Paul Klee, Josef Albers and Giorgio Morandi. Johnson divides his time between his California studio and his favorite painting locations in Italy, France and Denmark. His paintings can be found in over 500 collections including the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Frederick R. Weisman Museum at Pepperdine and the Federal Reserve Board in Washington, DC.
