Artist Kiel Johnson and Crowd Sourced Cardboard Dancing Robots

Kiel Johnson has been very busy since we featured him in Hi-Fructose Volume 14. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Johnson is known for his drawings and sculptures which are layered narratives and metaphorical representations of the world. His primary focus is creating drawings, however he also works with paper and other materials such as cardboard, styrofoam, wood, and metal to create complex sculptures. Johnson enjoys collaborating and he recently shared with us the new short film entitled Bot Prom which is a film incorporating the army of robots that were created two years ago at an educational workshop that Johnson led at Cypress College. The collaboration was an investigation of low tech colliding with high tech and all of the costumes were created by the students inspired by Johnson's artistic style and use of accessible materials. See more of his projects and his studio after the jump!
