Jasper Johns (born on May 15, 1930) was the subject of today’s Fabulous Fine Art. Johns is an American artist who has painted flags, maps, targets, letters, and numbers. We created replicas of his painting Numbers in Color, 1958–59 using number stencils and dot markers (images coming soon!). Fun fact: On February 15, 2011, Jasper Johns received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama.
