FAIRVIEW, OK, October 16, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- William Johnston has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Mr. Johnston is known for being an artist, educator, author, pastor, and president of his local Lions Club in 2020, husband and father. His children all have professional degrees and his own degree is a Masters of Theology from Southern Methodist University.
William Johnston, Artist of the year - 2019, is an abstract expressionist known for his distinct, fractal-esque style that works to "fill the mind with inspiration." His paintings are multifaceted and resemble both landscapes and portraits, although they firmly remain in the realm of the abstract. In his attempt to capture an almost Biblical grandiosity, Johnston has turned his work towards both the organic and the synthetic. His intricate patterns hearken to the natural complexity of organic forms while also insistently hinting at the future possibilities of the digital world. Aesthetically and thematically, Johnston shows the influence of the vast landscapes of the American Southwest. He has become 'America's Artist.'
His artwork introduces a new form of oil painting that includes the technique of Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock, the charm of Vincent Van Gogh, the reflective imagination of Claud Monet and the free style of Gerhard Richter. It is said he paints with a divine heart and calls the viewers to search down deep for meaning. History will record that he has captured a spiritual reflection in his paintings and that he has taken a 'Leap of Faith.' These are truly remarkable paintings the likes of which have never been seen or felt before. Exhibits include Banks and Educational Institutions, The Seven State Biennial Exhibition, The Nesbitt Gallery, The Charles B. Goddard Center, The Red River Museum, Agora Gallery in New York City and The Cross on I-40 east of Amarillo, and Artist of the Decade - 2010 - 2020 by Art Tour International. He hosts the William Johnston Gallery in Fairview, Oklahoma and has an on-line presence for paintings, clothing and touring at wrjart.com
