Kris Johnsen

He may be a softspoken guy, but Kris Johnsen's art screams Portland. His prints and posters mix repetition (symbolizing our laboriousness), regional vocabulary (moose, pine trees, and shorelines), and a healthy palette of gaudy and gritty colors. Though you may not always see his name, it's possible to see his work daily, on every other city block. That sort of inspired, selfless devotion to the arts is something we can all get down with. | krisjohnsen.com
