Austin artist Will Johnson explores the history of baseball in a series of portraits of players.
Will is also a well-known musician: Centromatic & Monsters of Folk to name a couple.
Johnson began creating baseball paintings in 2007 or 2008, wanting to pay tribute to some of his favorite players and stories — especially unheralded players — through folk art paintings, and his paintings have been exhibited in a number of group and solo art shows.
An avid baseball fan since childhood, he roots for the St. Louis Cardinals.
