Micah Johnson is a self-taught figurative artist who uses strong gestural lines and loose brush strokes to create dramatic portraits featuring African-American children. Although Micah spent seven years as a professional baseball player, you rarely see reference to his career in any of his works.
He sees art as an independent journey with the opportunity to inspire a broader demographic around the subjects of racial equality, chasing your dreams without limitations, and the empowerment of young people.
I’m excited to have Micah on The Mental Wealth Show to discuss his interest in Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) and his current opportunity to blend digital NFTs with offline life.
He shares his experience of being a major league baseball player, how he got to that level in his sport, and why he decided to retire in his 30s to pursue other goals. Micah also gives his advice and insights to people who are dubious about getting into blockchain or cryptocurrency and clears up a common myth.
“Rely on people and delegate is probably the most critical part to continue to have sustained growth and impact.” – Micah Johnson
