Hans Johansson

Statement by artist Hans Johansson

I am born in the north of Sweden but  nowadays I´m living in a little village outside the university city of Lund, in the south of Sweden.

I am educated in several art Schools, the latest is The Royal College of Art in the capital of Sweden, Stockholm.

I  am working  with painting and drawing. In the painting there is a wide range of possibilities  to express my intentions. When I am workingwith the graphics, I can work more with the drawing. Drawing that is always the ground for my work both in painting and printmaking. My painting is colorful and I never get bored on experimenting with colors.

In my art are the artistic expression most important and to create  an emotional experience. Experiences that can inspire people to new ideas and create curiosity. I am fascinated by what I see around me, the environment, my dreams and also of course what I see on art exhibitions and in museums. But the historical perspective the mysterious myths in the imagination that the humans has created is also significant. Both historically and in our time.
