Timothy Sean Johnston
Timothy Sean Johnston is one of the artists included in Gallery5's current exhibition of graffiti and graffiti-ish work. I think a number of these artists are taggers and better known to many by their tags. Can't match names with tags here, they are all wanted.
The opening was fun - the gallery erected a big wall out front for anybody to paint on, good bands, the police, beer, and good art. Timothy Sean Johnston (more work below) was one of my favorites, along with Oura Sananikone. I'll post more artists later.
This is an excellent show and the second-best graffiti show in town. The best is here. Does anybody have a name or alias for this artist? I am a huge fan.
UPDATE 6/4/07: the mystery artist linked to above is known as Judith Supine, now "famous" in New York.
