Leasho Johnson is a visual artist working primarily in painting, collage, sculpture, and some digital medium. Johnson uses his experience growing up black, queer, and male to explore concepts around forming identity and the post-colonial condition. Johnson is inspired by Jamaican Dancehall street culture, psychological interiority’s, gender politics, Caribbean mythology, and trauma. He uses cartooning as a mode of abstraction to blur the distinction of stereotype and representation, geography and memory, to reveal or hide western contentions with the black body.
