About the artist: 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. The craft itself is something she puts a lot of time and care into, from sawing out shapes in mdf boards, spackle and sanding them to mixing the paint.
She always goes about it 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.
