Peaceable Kingdom

Chris Johanson & Jo Jackson - Peaceable Kingdom
Peaceable Kingdom is the first book of collaborative work by the two American artists. All paintings feature a mix and match of both artists' styles, from Johanson's political, social themes and color patterns, to the oneiric, provocative and ambiguous side of human identity represented by Jackson's softer tones. Each painting being none like the other, and showing an incredible combination of shapes, forms, colors and ideas through a fascinating imaginary world, almost childlike.
Partners in life and art, artists Chris Johanson (1968, San Jose) and Jo Jackson (1972, Springfield), now living between Portland and New York, emerged from the late '90s San Francisco-based skater/surf/graffiti scene, known to many as the Mission School, with portfolios of charged, figurative drawings and immersive three-dimensional environments.
