Hitting the Note: Park Life

San Francisco loves Ian Johnson. When he last showed at Park Life in 2007, SFGate’s Culture Blog was sure to attend the opening with cameras ready. They caught a few words with the man of the hour, along with several great shots of the show.

“On Friday I stopped by Park Life to see a solo show by one of my favorite Bay Area artists Ian Johnson. Ian paints and draws jazz musicians mostly, focusing on the innovators and originators of the music. Musicians like John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, Billie Holiday and many others from that time. He mixes his obsession with jazz with his role as art director for Western Edition skateboards, bringing his images to the bottoms of skateboard decks.” -Matt Petty, SFGate
