Melissa Johnson is a visual artist and prop stylist living in Brooklyn, NY creating public artworks nationally and internationally. She has been commissioned to complete murals as well as public sculptures. In September 2012 Melissa traveled to create landscape installations associated with her Power Women collages at an artist residency in Italy. In 2015 Melissa joined artist collective Gowanus Swim Society. In 2017 she co-founded Upstairs Projects, an art hosting + curating team. Her largest project to date, The Look, was completed in 2018.

Her visual language has a flare for being bold and colorful while still maintaining versatility to suit all projects.

Melissa spends time thinking about how to start writing her first musical, frequenting Karaoke dives, and going down a youtube rabbit hole to watch old music videos for inspiration.
