EMOTIONS AND STORIES
Annamaria Johansson is an artist based in Stockholm. She was born in 1986 in a city called Östersund which lies in the northern part of Sweden. At an early age, she had great urge to paint and draw.
Life has it twist and turns and Annamaria ended up in the corporate world after working a couple of years in the health care sector as a registered nurse. While working she continued study at Stockholm’s University to complete a Bachelor’s degree in business adminsitration.
Annamaria’s work is strongly influenced by the candid description of being a human in today’s society. She believes that we all have a higher purpose and are divine beings searching for inner peace, finding joy and to for fill our lives by using earthly things, consuming and building our own personality from the outside in, instead of the opposite. Children have always had a special place in the work of Annamaria. She believes that children, embody the purity and unfiltered expression of the reality they are facing. Today’s uncertainty is revealed in the portraits that Annamaria has painted.
Her travels have allowed her to collect a lot of experience from all parts of the world, including inspiration from Zanzibar, Cape Verde, Vietnam, Dominican Republican, New York and Europe.
She evolved her scope of experience to different mediums of expression, namely graphite, charcoal, water colours and oil paintings.
She refrains from planning pieces and opts rather, for the canvas and days inspiration to lead her.
The latest collection FREE HUMAN, is a mix of portraits of humans including a cheetah. All the stories and poems are written by Annamaria herself.
Annamaria currently work as full time artist from her studio in the heart of Stockholm - a space that she deems to be in need for more creativity and free humans.
