THE 21-day one-man art exhibit of visual artist, singer and songwriter Johnny E. SJ. Otilano opened last April 7, 2018 at the La Habra Art Gallery, La Habra, California.

Johnny, a California-based and multi-awarded artist, has exhibited in many galleries in the U.S. and museums abroad. Being also a musician, his works create a dialogue between his music and his artworks.

Moreover, as a singer and songwriter, the California-based and multi-awarded artist creates a dialogue between sound and his artworks and has exhibited in many galleries in the U.S. and museums abroad.

A prolific artist, Johnny says “I feel that my paintings express a thousand words and myriad thoughts. If a pen be mightier than as sword, my brushes are more powerful than a weapon of enmity.”
