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.

Since 2008 Johnson has produced a number of paintings, mostly centering on the subject of baseball and its history, which have been exhibited in group and solo art shows. An avid baseball fan as a child, he roots for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Johnson said that he 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. Friends commissioned some of the work, which led to art shows
