A beautiful new mural dedicated to Daniel Johnston has been unveiled in Austin, Texas.
The outsider talent passed away last year, leaving a quite singular catalogue in his wake.
The Hi, How Are You? project was inspired by his work, and it encourages people to check in on their friends' mental health.
The project’s co-founder Tom Gimbel commented:
“Be sincere in asking that questions and checking in on one another and making sure that we’re doing all doing all right from a mental wellness standpoint…And if we’re not, let us know that it’s okay and that there’s help available.”
Austin Central Library unveiled the new mural yesterday - January 22nd - on what would have been Daniel's 59th birthday.
A wonderful tribute, you can check it out below:
