Artist Profile: Johannes1977

Johannes1977 is a well known artist, publisher and curator in Second Life. Combining black and white photography with sepia and a few other choice colors he has created a trademark vintage look for his artwork. See his Flickr photostream here.

Having showcased his own art in several galleries and other locations over the years, Johannes 1977 runs the Creations Art Gallery as well. Housing some big names of the virtual art world, this gallery is definitely an important one.
