Jonna Johansson (b. 1975) is a visual artist based in Helsinki.
She has studied at the University of Brighton, England (BA) and Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki, MFA (Painting department).

Johansson works mostly with paintings and her works have been exhibited at several exhibitions in Finland as well as other places in the world.

Jonna Johansson deals with humanity on a large scale in her works. She takes a stand on global phenomena by means of her paintings and installations. The final work is a versatile discussion of content and visual splendour.

Her works can be interpreted from different points of view. Johansson paints the everyday realism, even its reverse side, either as it is or covered in a pastel dream.

She uses oil, acrylic and alkyd paints, and her clear forms and bold colours relate to fantasies. Johansson's works are aesthetically wonderfull, and her works capture the viewer easily due to the powerful use of colour and brush.
