Daniel D. Johnston (1961-2019) was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and artist. Johnston was the subject of the 2006 documentary "The Devil and Daniel Johnston". He lived in Waller, Texas.
As with other talented but troubled artists such as Syd Barrett, Brian Wilson, and Kurt Cobain, Daniel Johnston fought a daily battle with the chronic mental illness that plagued him nearly his entire life. However, despite suffering from bipolar disorder, Johnston carved out a respectable, influential career as a singer/songwriter and visual artist of extraordinary talent. Which grew since his first crudely recorded cassette was released in 1980.
His music has been covered by artists such as Lana Del Ray, Nick Cave, Beach House, Beck, and Wilco. And his artwork has been featured in countless galleries and museums around the world.
Victory at Sea features some of Daniel's most well-known characters, the Space Ducks. This piece was part of Daniel's portfolio at the famous Whitney Museum of American Art.
