Steve Johnston - The Artist Bio

Steve Johnson artist profile picture

Steve Johnston was born in Glasgow in 1956. He attended Carlisle Art College studying art at first but changing his medium to photography during the second year. He was especially intrigued by black and white formats. He saw photography as an art form in itself utilizing the camera rather than the paints.


After finishing college Steve Johnson worked freelance as a photographer for teen magazines, later on working for the internationally renowned Vogue magazine in 1977, where his work was included in the Pink Punk Book published in 1978. Steve Johnsons style of photography was later used as the backbone for the first issue of I-D magazine in 1980, where Johnston worked for the following few years.

It wasn’t until 1991 when Steve finally reignited his passion for painting once again and he hasn’t looked back since.

Steve likes to take the observer on a journey of nostalgia through his artwork giving off an almost transitory and elegant quality. His paintings almost seem not of this world, rather than somewhere definitive. With this in mind, Steve doesn’t portray his characters to be anyone in particular. His objective is to create a spirit and emotion rather than an exact person and location. He has no interest in a set narrative, his artwork is all subjective t emotions and how they make you feel.

His limited edition artwork is sold throughout many of the leading art galleries throughout the UK. 

Steve Johnston is now regarded as one of the leading artists currently available in the UK and here at Room we are proud to have his artwork.
