About Annika Johansson
Annika Johansson is a Swedish painting artist whose art revolves around geometric patterns, color and a kind of contemporary Trompe l’oeil painting.
The colors are harmonious and only build with the help of light and shadow the illusion of being 3D. The surface is completely flat.
Her paintings are neither completely abstract nor figurative, but you can read figures or symbols, eyes, and mouths into them if you want.
Il suo lavoro è caratterizzato da linee chiare, forme stilizzate e minimali e colori forti e spazia dall'illustrazione editoriale ai grandi dipinti murali, dagli oggetti di design ai libri.
The colors are both clear and precise and the edges are razor sharp.
She always works methodically, counting and drawing a pattern, taping, and painting layer upon layer of vinyl paint until she achieves the right shade and density in the paint.
It’s playful and colorful, with a bit of humor.
Annika Johansson in her own words
I find all phases of the projects equally fun from sketching, time planning, building models, planning, the production. From the idea to the finished work.
Because I find all parts of the project exciting and inspiring, I want to do as much as possible myself. At the same time, I appreciate the collaboration, and being able to brainstorm ideas with skilled craftsmen, architects and project managers.
I often work with different patterns, optical illusions, illusory three-dimensional painting. Neither completely abstract nor figurative.
I put great emphasis on the craft itself in my paintings, I cut out all my shapes myself in mdf boards which I then putty and sand until they get the high finish I’m after, then I paint with many layers of vinyl paint (flash) in sharp lines.
In the words of art critic Dan Backman
Annika Johansson’s new paintings are like a lovely French musical from the early sixties.
Or, to take a slightly more art-specific analogy, like a dance performance with Bridget Riley’s and Daniel Buren’s stripes as prima ballerinas.
It’s hard edge, op art and illusion painting, all the time with a humorous twist. The colors are cheerful (…). The forms as well.
