Jonathon Bergeron, or “Johnny Crap,” has outdone himself in the realm of the bizarre with his newest collection of paintings, which combine his longtime love of tacos with his obsession with the dark side. Bergeron presented this newest collection in a pop-up taco shop with other local and international artists in Toronto in late April this year. It’s hard to believe, considering the masterful technical skill present in his works, that Johnny is a self-taught artist. He currently resides in Montreal where he creates his surreal works, full of colourful characters with cartoon like features.
