Artist’s Statement

Jonna Johansson is a visual artist based in Helsinki Finland. She has studied at the University of Brighton UK (BA) and Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki (MFA).
Jonna Johansson’s approach to the medium of painting and installation is strongly influential. She creates images that reflect different aspects of humanity at a large scale. On the other hand Johansson deals with the global phenomenon and the social issues on the level of individuals. Johansson search her imagery from several different media. And together with her technique and her use of oil, acrylic and alkyd on the same surface in her painting she creates realistic and unrealistic affection at the same time. This can also be seen in her painting installation work.
