Edward Johanson

I am a self-taught artist who has always been captivated by all aspects of art, but through my journey, I have developed a love for painting through different medias. Lately I have focused on mastering the use of oil on my canvases. I enjoy painting landscapes, plein air, abstract, portraits and many more.


I am originally from Peru, which inspires a lot of my work. My artwork demonstrates my Peruvian culture, folklore, and the places I have explored. Through my artistic career, I have developed my own techniques, which help translate my thoughts into my canvas. I start painting not knowing what the next step is, and as I enter my own mind space, I slowly start to feel my mind wander and my paintbrushes fill with color creating my new canvas.
One advice for a starting artist is to not criticize your artwork but to encourage yourself to progress and always say "the next one will be better" and of course, enjoy the journey.

I am a member of Maryland Federation of  Art and Montgomery Art Association.
