Bravo’s Work of Art: Erik Johnson
Visit Bravo’s Workf of Art official page for all the skinny on the artistants (artist + contestant = artistant; wish we had thoughf of it but this was all Bravo’s brilliance), video clips of the show, private confessions and interviews, bios, and hear from the judges.
While Erik is new to the fine arts industry, his unique perspective and passion for art rose from his found passion for filmmaking. His short film “The Ghost of Christmas Presents” put him on the art world’s radar with its debut at Cannes Film Festival in 2006.
Though Erik was eliminated in Work of Art’s latest episode, it wasn’t up until the latest few episodes that producers focused in on Erik’s personal story. Though admitting that he was always an artistic child, Erik credits a motorcycle accident as the catalyst for the sudden explosion of artistic vision in his later years, after he was left partially brain damaged to the left hemisphere of his brain.
