Daniel Johnston’s First Public Mural in 20 Years Unveiled (Photos)

Even if you don’t know the name “Daniel Johnston,” you’re probably familiar with the Austin, TX artist‘s work, if for no other reason than Kurt Cobain famously wearing a t-shirt bearing his famous Hi, How Are You cover art, which also happens to be a prominent mural near the UT Austin campus. Now, Johnston has unveiled his first public mural since Hi, How Are You‘s debut 20 years ago.

Presumably titled Love Is The Question, Love Is The Answer after the slogan emblazoned on the side, Daniel Johnston’s first mural in 20 years also features a caped superhero character standing triumphantly over a multi-eyed creature – all in all, it’s a work that is unmistakably Daniel Johnston’s to anyone familiar with the artist.

Also cool is the fact that Love Is The Question, Love Is The Answer is part of an ongoing fundraising campaign for Superhero Kids, a charitable organization for children suffering from cancer and blood disorders and their families. After you see a few photos of the mural unveiling in the gallery below, you might want to head over to the Superhero Kids website here.
