Sculptures of everyday objects by Michael Johansson

As a child, Michael Johansson was fascinated building models. Of his own work as a sculptural artist, he says: ‘Everyday objects from mid-20th century housewives are taken apart, sorted, and repacked in an equally outdated boydream esthetics. These two worlds are merged together and the objects are frozen in their new shape – while the function is displayed, the functionality is taken away’. He also applies the same treatment to bikes, boats and gardening appliances.

About the author

A love of traveling, art, and denim saw this Brit native mix them all up. The result was art crafted from denim and a new home in Sweden. Even though he once lived in Australia and never rode a wave, Denimu is only slightly better with a keyboard and likes to write about the things he has seen on his travels and the people he meets along the way.
