"My words of wisdom to upcoming artists would be to just keep working on your craft and never stop learning"
- Manasseh Johnson
Please give us a brief bio. How, and when, did you discover your passion?
Every since the young age of three Ive had a pencil in my hand. I’ve always had a passion to draw. Like most artists I just wanted to be able to draw really well so I practiced and developed my skill over the years.
Do you have coffee, caffeine or a routine before “Entering The Matrix” and start to fire on all cylinders?
I’m not much of a coffee drinker. I usually start my day with a brief workout and breakfast before entering The Matrix.. lol
As a kid, who was your biggest motivator?
As a kid, my biggest motivator was myself. I have always been a self-motivator. I just wanted to get better.
If you could choose one artist, living or deceased, who inspired your artistic style the most?
The one artist that influenced me the most would probably be Kadir Nelson.
If you were not in the creative field you are in today, what would be your chosen profession?
If I wasn’t a creative, I’d probably be a psychologist.
Shameless Plug: Are you working on anything you’re proud of and would like to share?
Yea, actually I am working on some designs for my new clothing line that’ll be in stores soon. It’s called GFA God.Family.Art
Any inspirational words of wisdom?
My words of wisdom to upcoming artists would be to just keep working on your craft, never stop learning or ever let anyone tell you that you can’t make a living from art. It’s definitely possible with hard work.
