He was born in the small Swedish town 27 years ago, but for his career was forced to move to Germany. But this happened much later after he became interested in drawing, when he lived with his family on a farm in Getene.
At the age of fifteen the boy became an owner of his first digital camera. Along with traditional painting, Erik Johansson was fond of the computer, and it was not just about the games. Seven years ago he moved to Gothenburg, where he studied computer engineering at the Chalmers University of Technology. Along the way he became interested in photo retouching, and after placing a couple of his works on the Internet started getting orders from local advertising agencies. In 2012 he moved to Berlin and worked as a freelancer with such famous brands as Microsoft, Google and IKEA.
