Featured Artist #1: Chris Johanson

October 6, 2008

As an art student, I feel it’s necessary to expose all of you, non-art-kids to a little art culture.

Today’s featured artist is… Chris Johanson. He is an artist from San Francisco, California and his work is mostly with painting, drawing and sculpture. If you wanna read more about him you can click here.

We’ve just started a new project in my 2D class where we had to pick an image or poster and then turn it into our own image with a different meaning. I picked one of his pieces (not pictured below) and found his stuff to be kind of awesome. It’s very contemporary and almost cartoon like. We’re just on day two of the project so we’ll see how it turns out!
