David Johnson (b. 1982, Austin, TX) is an artist and educator based in St. Louis, MO. He received an MFA in Visual Art from Washington University in St. Louis in 2007 and earned his BFA in Studio Art with an emphasis in Photography from Texas Christian University, Fort Worth, in 2005. His current research involves the relationship between the built environment and its inhabitants. By focusing on small mundane objects and the quality of lighting, his abstracted photographs of office spaces and domestic environments highlight the strained relationship between self and place. Currently, Johnson is an Adjunct Lecturer at Saint Louis University and is also a founding member of the RAD LAB studio space in downtown St. Louis. His photographs have been exhibited nationally, including at the Mildred Lane Kemper Museum, Los Caminos, and Boots Contemporary Arts Space, all in St. Louis; La Esquina, Kansas City, MO; Newspace Center for Photography, Portland, OR; and Maps Contemporary Art Space, Belleville, IL.
