Ian Johnson: I Know You're Somewhere
(50 items available)
This book presents all-new paintings and drawings by San Francisco-based artist Ian Johnson in his signature style: portraits of jazz musicians from the '40s, '50s, and '60s that were produced using gouache, acrylic, or pen on paper or wood panel. Johnson combines abstract background shapes with figurative representations to create jaw-dropping pieces that succeed at evoking the music of each artist.Ian Johnson is also the art director of Western Edition skateboards and creates limited edition collector's skate decks; his work has been featured in Juxtapoz and Jazz Colours and he has created illustrations for The New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Wax Poetics, and The New Yorker.
