Michael Johansson

Michael Johansson currently lives and works in Malmö, Sweden. He deals with ordinary objects we all recognize, but in a way far from the ordinary. Driven by the agenda to densify the world objects connected to a certain place are morphed into precisely stacked rectangular shapes where their original purpose are transformed into catalysts of new meanings. After studies at the Art Academy in Trondheim, Norway, and Kunsthochschule Berlin Weissensee, Germany, Johansson took his masters degree at Malmö Art Academy, Sweden, 2005. After that he has taken part of several residencies, exhibited frequently both within and outside of Sweden, and constantly developed new work.
