Oliver B. Johnson Jr., 72, of Cresco, died Wednesday, October 27, 2021 at home. He was the loving husband of Marianna M. (Blunt) Johnson, with whom he shared 44 years of marriage.
Born in Jacksonville, Florida, he was the son of Oliver B. Johnson Sr. of Jacksonville, Florida and the late Lillian (Haywood) James.

Completely self-taught, Oliver started drawing when he received encouragement and an art set from his beloved grandfather as young boy. His turning point came in 1977 when he joined Nichiren Buddhism and in the same year, he was featured in a Bedford-Stuyvesant art show in Brooklyn, whereupon his fame sky-rocketed. Now considered one of the greatest artists of our time, his works are included in major art collections in the United States and Europe.
