it's no secret: i love the art that chris johanson makes. i went to see his show in new york a few months ago and i will admit that it was one of the most personally moving and epic art experiences of my life. i feel lucky that not only is one of my favorite painters alive at the same time that i am, but that i got to see an amazing, important show of his in real life. it made me feel things i forgot about. like i was a caveman who got unfrozen.
while i was there i creeped around and got really into the way he signs the back of his paintings. drawing is drawing is drawing and it's the lines that always make me crazy. dig it:
