Ray Johnson:Untitled valise from Bob Box Archive

Tables of Content: Ray Johnson and Robert Warner Bob Box Archive

Artist Ray Johnson's life and career is an enigma, difficult to know, even more difficult to understand and analyze.  His life was cloaked in mystery right up to his death and some say, even beyond.

He was overshadowed by those like Warhol who manipulated that world in a very different and successful manner. He has been called - in fact, called himself - New York's most famous unknown artist, but one who challenged the commercial and critical establishment. His life art, life and death were deliberate puzzles and the extent of his influence has only become apparent posthumously.
