Artist Damon Johnson exhibited over a dozen pieces inspired by his love for Dick Tracy with a similar comic book, hero style of detailed paintings of villains and victims. Once and a while you can catch his vibrant work on the streets similar to the flower below sprawling from the concrete of a vacant building. I'm a new admirer to his work and look forward to seeing more in the galleries and on the streets. Brooklyn Street Art also did a nice feature on him that you can find here: http://www.brooklynstreetart.com/theblog/. (And, for more on Johnson, visit his Facebook page listed below.)
Have a look at the exhibit and the magazine release...
