Weree, Johnson; Untitled faceAuthor: Frans Smolders,

Johnson Weree (b. 1970 in Liberia) draws every single day, from early morning until late at night—usually heads of middle-aged men and women (very occasionally with a child’s head in front of their chests), and sometimes trucks and SUVs. He draws them in “mixed media”—specifically, ballpoint pens in various colours, gel pens, pencils, crayons or pastels. His works are colourful, attractive and inviting, but at the same time mysterious, and they demand a closer look.
