About Mia Renee Johnson
As an artist, I have always used my creations to explore my own interests, the journey deep in my imagination, that place that we all want to go to get away from reality. To me, that place is home. I take great influence from fantasy, different cultures and cartoons, which probably stems from growing up always wanting to be anywhere but in my own body. I feel that I have an unusually rare view on what beauty and happiness are because it has always been things I can’t grasp or understand. I’m drawn to what’s different. It is the differences in culture that create the idea of exoticism and I am always looking to find the beauty in those differences. People that are different don’t usually feel beautiful and can’t relate to what is portrayed as beauty. We tend to want to get away from realism and it is rare to see those differences used as subject matter. By focusing my artistic lens on the exotic and fantasy, I want to draw attention to cultures and beauty that might not otherwise be noticed.
