Erik Johansson
                                                Go your own road

Erik Johansson is a photographer based in Gothenburg, Sweden who manipulates his images to create entirely new - and often mind-boggling - art.

Eric's goal is to make his pictures as realistic as possible, but at the same time impossible. He often uses humour to convey a message, but usely he wants the viewer to interpret the photos themselves.

Erik draws inspiration from artists including M.C. Escher, Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte, as well as photos and drawings he sees on the Internet. “I think the most important thing is to make a note of every idea, otherwise it might be gone in a few seconds.”
