JURORS

Charlie Johnston graduated from U of M with bachelor of fine arts, 1984. Aka ‘C5′ is a painter, sculptor, and world class muralist who has been creating public art for 25 years, conceiving and executing large scale murals and sculptures in concrete, mixed media and bronze. He explores motifs that are both site-specific and concept focused, with a technical, realist utilization of art materials to support his specific approach to making art. He creates poetic experiences for the growth of individual and collective consciousness, remixing archetypes and genres to create new perspectives on the human experience. Charlie is creative in portraits, design work, architectural imagery, and is also an art consultant, art instructor, and teaches art marketing workshops.
