Johanna Elbe (b. 1984) is an intuitive artist living in Växjö Sweden where she also studied visual arts and mathematics at the University. Selected member of the Swedish Artist Association and founder of Af Elbe and the Japandi Art series. Her abstract work became the way back after an exhaustion due to longtime stress. A process to balance her inner self and to find calm in the chaos of life. Johannas art is an elegant minimalist interpretation of nature and an attempt to create harmony and reflection in everyday life. Her work carries a monochrome and subtle expression with the aim of capturing the feeling and essence of the chosen element. Each work is complemented with a poem to create a deeper meaning and dimension to the artists own thoughts. These two make up the complete artwork together. On the international art market Johanna has been called a master of abstraction, that with her delicate color selection and subtle texture creates pieces that fill a room with calm. Her way of seeking a meditative atmosphere for a space has also been noticed and valued by Interior Design Magazines.
