If you've visited the Kerbey Lane on Guadalupe St. near the University of Texas campus recently, you may have noticed a new mural proclaiming Austinites' love for the melted cheese dip known as queso. Back in April we commissioned local artist, Mike Johnston ("TRUTH"), to add a pop of color to the side of our building to give patrons the opportunity to snap a photo in order to publicly display their affection for our famous queso.
Johnston is a street art evangelist who aims to bring a message of joy to the masses. His major influences have been travel, comic books, Jesus Cristo, and a variety of street art. He and his wife, Erin, traveled across Europe, Asia, and the Middle East before making Austin their home eight years ago. He quickly became known for the portraits of pop culture icons and bright, graphic, illustrative murals he painted throughout the city.
