Through the Lens: Once Over Coffee Bar Hosts Art Show

On Saturday, Feb. 27, Once Over Coffee Bar transformed into an art gallery for artists Johnny Stranger and Bort. Inside, Johnny Stranger displayed work from the series Emulsional Rescue, which uses emulsion transfer to combine photographs and painting. He portrayed various three-dimensional works, including one of his signature rabbit snake pieces. On the patio, Bort displayed paintings, screen-prints, stickers and pillows for visitors. Both Johnny Stranger and Bort are active street artists with their work scattered all around Austin. Along with street art, they also occasionally display art in galleries around town.
