Johannes Wessmark was born in Karlstad, Sweden in 1962. After working as an advertising and computer graphics illustrator for 15 years, he realized his dream of becoming a full-time artist in 2006.
In my paintings, I want to convey a feeling of calm and relaxation. Water and landscapes a subject matters that have followed me for many years. I grew up in the country and have spent much time in the wilderness and forests around me. We also had a summer-house by the Swedish west coast where we spent many holidays. Positive experiences that came to influence me as an artist many years later. Hyperrealistic figurative and portrait painting together with landscapes have become my favorite motives over the many years as an artist, as you can see on my website www.johanneswessmark.se
