About Michael Johnson


  1. Wow, this painting reminds me of a scene in the popular Japanese graphic novel titled “Pluto”.
    The story deals with the balance between humans and robots, and “ethics” in that context definitely.
    And in this particular scene, a terribly vicious robot fights himself from killing so hard, he spends his time observing flowers.

    Your painting is so evocative. Love it. And thanks for sharing.
