Hello! My earth name is Brian Johnson, and I started travelling around the sun in 1984. In 2018 I created Elysium Project, with the vision of providing a voice to artists and visionaries from around the world. The mission? To leave the planet and its society in better condition than we found it.
I have dealt with many mental health and addiction challenges in my life, all of which provided me with the space and insight to take a step back from the usual state of auto-pilot, and ask what on earth we are really doing here. While I still don't know the answer to that, one of my passions is bringing guests onto the podcast to share their knowledge and experience of the human experience. I believe we are all like individual waves, forever connected to one another in a vast ocean of collective consciousness. In that regard, I don't believe any one person has all the answers, but that we each carry a piece to the puzzle, and everyone has something unique to contribute in the great story of life ever unfolding before our eyes.
I am also an artist, and have been tinkering around with various different mediums since 2005, when I first attended art school. Not knowing how to support myself purely as an artist, I entered the hair industry in 2015, and for several years had a lot of fun expressing my creative side through barbering. With the creation of Elysium Project, I have once again returned to more traditional art, and am currently enjoying working with graphite, focusing primarily on portraiture. I love how each persons face tells a unique story about who they are and the life they have lived.
Below you can see some samples of my work, some of which are featured for sale on the Elysium Project marketplace.
