Mary A. Johnson is an American artist who lives and works in Beijing.

She creates work using organic materials and digital images; reminiscent of petri dishes, forgotten refrigerators, and Flemish still lives. Her work engages the gaps between the repulsive and the seductive; the image and experience.

Of special interest to her research is the Neobaroque and the grotesque.

She is a full time Lecturer at the China Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA).
