Michael Johnson

of Nottinghamshire, UK

Michael has been making artwork for public spaces since 1991. His first commission, for the Duchy of Cornwall, a 25-foot-high sculptural piece displayed in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham, went on to win the Birmingham Design Award and has been featured in many publications.

With more than 200 commissions for both rural and urban sites throughout the UK and Ireland to his name, Michael’s clients range from national institutions, banks, and property developers, to local authorities, landscape architects, community groups and schools. He has held several ‘Lead Artist’ positions in large regeneration schemes, responsible for designing the arts input, commissioning other practitioners, and project managing the implementation of the artworks. For ‘Turning the Tide’ the reinstatement of the East Durham coastline after 150 years of industrial spoil, the award-winning scheme achieved heritage status and was opened by the Queen in 2002. In 2014 the artist was shortlisted for the Marsh Award for excellence in public sculpture.
