Ben Johnson: interview

Studio International visited the Alan Cristea gallery to talk to the painter Ben Johnson. This is his second exhibition at the gallery, comprising five new paintings of half-real, half-imagined interiors. Born in Wales, a graduate of the Royal College of Art, Johnson has been making extraordinary hyper-real paintings for around four decades. We asked him about his new works.
