Mollie Tuggle & Will Johnson
Local Austin Artist Mollie Tuggle is a traditionalist at heart.
Her widespread, colorful, screen prints can be attributed to the talented Fillmore & Haight street artists of the 60s & 70s Poster era. Keeping up & honoring the original format of poster art, all of her designs are illustrated by hand. Her only tools: Liquid ink, & a paint brush. The psychedelic, dreamlike style has gotten her recognition around the world- working with bands in Japan, Europe, & across our country. But her art far succeeds posters. She is also known for her beautiful, ethereal murals & her recent contribution to Austin- A larger than Life , Painted Gibson Guitar Statue.

Called “one of the most prolific artists in American indie rock”, Johnson has also released solo records, and is a member of the bands Monsters of Folk, New Multitudes and Overseas, and has also performed as part of the Undertow Orchestra. An avid baseball fan as a child, Johnson roots for the St. Louis Cardinals. Since 2008 Johnson has produced a number of folk art paintings, mostly centering on the subject of baseball and its history. Commissions from friends eventually led to his work being exhibited in group and solo art shows.
