I am particularly interested in contrasts and points of tension. Some of my pieces are like dark fairy tales of our present world, but always with a childlike sense of hope and comfort.

Thanks to everyone who came and made the opening night of my exhibition "The resort was beautiful but we argued all the time" at Taverna Brillo fantastic! I was so busy spending time with all the wonderful people who came to check out my art, that I forgot to take any pictures. Instead I will share a picture from yesterday when I was hanging the exhibition. The exhibition will be open until April 4th.
Together with Taverna Brillo I will be showing my art between March 9th - April 4th. There will be a Vernissage between 17-21 on March 9th with drinks and great DJs. For more information about the Vernissage check out the facebook event here!
Interviewed this morning about my art by the national Swedish morning show, Gomorron Sverige on SVT.
Tonight was the pre-vernissage for all the participating artists. Tomorrow between 13-17 the official opening of Liljevalchs vårsalong 2017 will take place!

One of my signed prints framed and ready for a new home! The motives are the same as the original paintings that will be exhibited at Liljevalchs vårsalong in January. Check out my shop johanbarrett.com/shop if even you want to hang one on your wall!
Just received a box of postcards with the motives I will be exhibiting at Liljevalchs. They really look great. These will be sold in the art shop at the exhibition. Mathias at Picno printed them for me in his studio. Great collaboration!
Today my shop opens. I will be selling exclusive prints in a signed, limited edition. The motives are the same as the original paintings that will be exhibited at Liljevalchs vårsalong in January. Ordered prints will be shipped January 11th, on the same day as Liljevalchs vårsalong opens.
