His work is intended to evoke a feeling of relaxation, enjoyment, and pleasure in our busy and fast-paced world.
“As a hyperrealist artist, I also enjoy making my works as realistic as possible. A passion I have had for many years back. I study my reference photos carefully, print them in full-size of painting, and work hard to get colors and details as real as possible. By combining different techniques in the same work I take advantage of the best features from different tools. Over many years I have refined and polished my working methods. Everything to get my work very lifelike even if I allow myself to add or remove from my reference photo to get that special feeling I am looking for.” -Johannes Wessmark
