As a complement to Chris Johanson's show Within the River of Time Is My Mind, on view now at MOCA Pacific Designer Center, the artist and the museum have released a soothing new video of the same name. Directed by filmmaker Wyatt Troll, the footage shows the painter and street artist (and PAPER Guru) cooking dinner in his Echo Park kitchen while discussing his pieces in the show and his creative process. "I'm happy to make simple art -- that's all that I want," Johanson says as shots of boiling pasta, the night sky and the artist in bed flash by. As Tibetan bells ring, we next see the artist waking up in the desert where he finds his wife, artist Johanna Jackson, underneath a creosote bush. As Johanson paints water colors alongside his wife, he discusses the relationship between his art and his marriage. The clip ends with Johanson repeating his maxim -- "I'm just happy to make simple art, that's all that I want" -- while surveying his exhibit. Check out the film, above.

Within the River of Time Is My Mind is on display at the MOCA Pacific Design Center through October 13.
