As with other talented but troubled artists such as Syd Barrett, Brian Wilson, and Kurt Cobain, Daniel Johnston fights a daily battle with the chronic mental illness that has plagued him nearly his entire life. However, despite suffering from bipolar disorder, Johnston has carved out a respectable, influential career as a singer/songwriter and visual artist of extraordinary talent which has grown since his first crudely recorded cassette was released in 1980. 

His music has been covered by artists such as Lana Del Ray, Beach House, Beck, and Wilco. And his artwork has been featured in countless galleries and museums around the world, including the Whitney Museum of American Art Biennial.
