About The Artwork

Cleanse is a photographic piece that represents the importance of personal soul care. Our entities are vital to the universe and those we love. The work calls for the viewer to practice grounding while forming a sense of self-love. What we consume impacts our overall mental health, and protecting the mind at all costs is vital. Everyone is unique and deserves an ample amount of happiness. The world can be such a cruel place, so when we find the good in it, we must protect it. We must preserve our inner light. Cleanse calls for personal love and positive mental consumption. Care for your soul because it is your light. This image was included in the Sources of Self-Regard Self-Portraits From Black Photographers Reflecting on America, NY Times article in 2020. Artist Statement (article) “The intake of bad information and imagery can have a harsh effect on your mental state, placing trauma where joy used to live. Because of that, I’ve had to fight in order to see the good on this planet and grant myself permission to enjoy the little things in life, such as the beauty of the earth, special moments with my family and others’ positive energy. I make it my daily duty to study the unique things in the world as if I’m looking at a painted canvas.”

Artist Information Hello, my name is Nitashia Johnson. I am a Nigerian-American, multimedia artist and educator from Dallas, Texas, who truly has a passion for creating. I attended Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. I later became an alum of Texas Woman's University (BFA) and the Rhode Island School of Design (MAT). I am currently finishing my Master of Fine Arts degree at the School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication at UT Dallas. I currently work as a Digital Media Specialist for the university setting and as a freelance graphic designer, photographer, videographer, and creative arts educator. I have worked as a freelance photographer and videographer for news publications, including The New York Times, The Dallas Morning News, NBC, The Washington Post, CNN, and others. For the past year surrounding personal passions, I have worked hard on my non-profit, The Smart Project - is a creative after-school program structured for teens and aspiring mentors living in North Texas. Another of my most significant artistic accomplishments is The Self Publication collection is a photographic book series created to dismantle the stereotypes placed on those in the Black community. What started as casual photographs transformed into a book series showcasing the beauty of Black natives and their stories. I am working on the project alone to shed light on community issues. I plan to film a short documentary series following five past participants as the work unfolds. I want to continue growing as an artist with outstanding leadership and thoughtful mentors. One of my latest projects is The Beauty of South Dallas. This project captures the rapid change of a historical neighborhood due to socio-economic shifts, creating a document of South Dallas for future residents, visionaries, and developers. ​ I love to create, and I use my photography and design skills to make a difference in the world. My photographic work is in The Dallas Morning News, D Magazine, and The New York Times. In 2019, I became one of the first women selected for the Sony Alpha Female Creator-in-Residence program. In 2021, I was the inaugural recipient of the Juanita J. Craft House Artist Residency Project and took part in the Talley Dunn Gallery Equity in the Arts Fellowship. I was also awarded the 2021 Artist Disruptor Award from The Center for Cultural Power.
