Artist ArenaPortfoliosLena Johnson Art


Self-taught abstract and figurative artist since 2017, based in Stockholm. Painting has now become a passion that I can not be without.

I like to use layers of paint on the canvas, using different tools and media to create structure and depth to my paintings.
Enjoying the journey it takes me on until it is ready and feels finished. Trying new techniques and styles so I can develop as an artist.
Harmonious color scales in light and soft shades characterise my art style.
Finding balance and a calmness in the finished painting is an important part of my process.

My hope is to evoke a feeling with my art, to create timeless eye-catchers, which awaken the imagination and an own interpretation by the viewer.
