Johann is a greenwich born and whitstable based artist.
using only black bic biros Johann bridges the gap between the ‘image’ and photo-realism to produce distinct and arresting pieces. photographic restraints have given way to a beautiful interpretation that only a craftsman can create. the photographic detail coupled with his individual craftsmanship ensure that Johann’s pieces are beautiful, alarming and undeniably his own.
The depth of tone and rich saturation in each of his unique images, brings the subject to the viewer in a haunting and personal way.
each piece take from 50 to well over 100 hours to complete and can take weeks or months as he tends to work on 3-4 at a time.
Johann has been exhibiting his work for 5 years while also working on a commission basis
