Visually stunning. Thought-provoking. Beautifully disturbingKen Paul Johnson is an Erie-based surrealist painter inspired by dreams, occultism, and the psychological nature of mankind. His work ruminates the quintessential trepidation of walking into a gorgeous nightmare. Perambulating through the darkness found within us all, he paints the stories of despondent beauty; cogent, yet seldom spoken of. His enigmatic paintings encapsulate the undiluted rawness of the human psyche.

Ken is open for commission work and portraiture upon request.
