It is my glory to have received a guest submission from the artist, Mike Johnston.
The first 6 pieces of art shown in this article were all painted during the summer of 2016 in Winnipeg.
I asked Mike to tell me a bit about himself.
I, for one, am thrilled Mike has come out of hibernation. His work is eye-catching, totally gorgeous and the details are mesmerizing.
I asked Mike about this very interesting work of art, shown in the above photo, and next 2 shots.

Mike: “The mural with the panels was a painting i put up at a recent art show. The blank spaces are the paintings that came from the installation.”
I love it!
The following shots are some earlier examples of Mike’s work.
You can visit Mike on his Website www.murdersnest.com .. where, if you’re in need of some gorgeous art on your building or on your body, he has a Contact Page.
Below, is Lester. This was one of the very first pieces of Street Art I ever encountered in Winnipeg. However, Lester was seriously obscured by industrial trash bins. Two years later, I returned, only to find a good portion of this amazing work had eroded due to the harsh Winnipeg Winters.
Mike, thank you for this pic!
