NEW Daniel Johnston Print. Titled “Is It Real To Be Dead” this archival pigment print measures 13”x16.5. Printed on Moab 300gms fine art paper with a hand deckled edge. From an edition of only 90. Hand signed in pencil by Daniel.

What is astounding about Daniel’s work is the fact that he is an absolute unending wellspring of creativity, the likes of which I have never witnessed before. No creative blocks here. What he thinks and feels gushes out on to the paper, or into a song. But, perhaps the most incredible part of the story is that all of the superlatives that have been used in describing how wonderful his music is can also be used for his artwork. PRE-SALE Price $60- Reg price after August 1st – $80.
