Johan Gustavsson

The work originates from very strenuous – almost meditative – moments the artist actively seeks. This way all his prior emotions unite and this enables him to entrust the ‘sum’ unto paper. So he is not just a contemplator but also a participant in his world. Themes as aesthetic, the position of the artist in the art world and the way art relates to society mix easily with ordinary themes as family, relations, politics, fashion, security, freedom and melancholy.
