Christian Johnson

Christian Johnson is a Renaissance man.... he is an accomplished painter, sculptor, draftsman, and print maker, and he also likes to compose some classical music on the piano on the side.

Christian works in a variety of mediums and sizes. For Single Fare he had to go really small. To accomplish this he first created drawings on on his large digital Wacom tablet, he then printed them small enough to fit on the metrocard. Christian then took it a step further and drew on top of the digital prints he made.

Christian says this about the series:
"Since commuting deals with so much repetition, I thought I would work with that and find different ways to make the repetitive seem interesting."
