HIGH ART 2020 SPOTLIGHT: SQUIDDY JOHNSON
“Charm depicts a mystical Middle Eastern trader, from an ancient time, long forgotten, enticing customers with the smoke from his magical herb, and weaving stories of its magic under the desert sky. He has journeyed many paths with his plants, and absorbed many teachings, and is here to guide you on a journey into”The Other”. Will you trade with O’Aabba today?”
Squiddy Johnson [artist name] is a versatile fine artist, illustrator and mural/street artist from the U.K, living in Australia. Squiddy aims to capture that raw human element in her art that evokes an emotional response and allows viewers to connect with the faces she draws. Within the emotive eyes and expression of each character is a deeper story and history.
