Royal Crush Collection
Damon Johnson just launch his new collection: "Royal Crush". The collection features iconic images from his art on slim fitting tees.
Johnson’s work has been described as urban surrealism; a melting pot of influences and art movements. His work combines pop culture references to graffiti, comics, tattoo art and skate graphics with traditional art movements including abstract expressionism, neo-expressionism, op-art and surrealism.
You can find some of his paintings in the permanent collection of the Patterson, Hamilton, and Chelsea Art Museums.
Johnson found over time that he wanted his art to be more accessible and has begun working on a new format: clothing.
The term wearable art gets passed around quite a bit, but with Johnson's line Royal Crush, it really holds true. Every symbol is a recurring image in his paintings, each representing a different time in his life.
