Johannes Wessmark was born in Karlstad, Sweden in 1962. After working as an advertising and computer graphics illustrator for 15 years, Johannes realized his dream of becoming a full-time artist in 2006.
“In my paintings, and especially my figurative motifs, I want to convey a feeling of calm and relaxation. Water is a subject matter that have followed me for many years. As a child we had a summer-house by the Swedish west coast where we spent many holidays. Positive experiences with water that came to influence me as an artist many years later.” - Johannes Wessmark
