Illustration for BRAND magazine

Illustration Brand_På spaning efter den stad som flytt copy

Today I got the printed version of the Brand magazine where one of my illustrations was published. My illustration was made with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator (SC5). Since the article mentioned SimCity I decided to use a street view screenshot from the game as background. For the foreground I used a photo of my friends from one of our days we´re out walking in the woods. Since the article itself talks about new urbanism and city planning I wanted to capture a sense of people exploring their city that is developing and expanding (and excluding) beyond the control of its own population. Working with a quite short notice I am very satisfied with the result. If you are interested in using me for illustrations and graphic design work do not hesitate to contact me at cap@capism.se

The illustration was published in Tidningen Brand, No 2, 2013, p.7 and 31.

Brand is a Swedish anarchist magazine and have been published continuously since 1898. To read, learn more and subscribe visit their website http://tidningenbrand.se/

Tusen ord säger mer än en bild – Utställning på Urban Artroom 8:e Juni 2013

Header pic Urban Artroom datum

 

Tusen ord säger mer än en bild (Artistic statement about the exhibition in English see below)

”Manipulerade bilder. Delar av ett sammanhang. Upprepning av ord, tusentals gången och du börjar förstå helheten. Tusen ord säger mer än en bildUrban Artroom är ett pågående vittnesmål om förändring. En förändring där jag har varit åskådare till drömmar som krossats av auktoriteter, hopp som sveps iväg av stormar, folkets vilja som ignoreras men röster som vägrar att tystna. Men det är det vackra i enkelheten och vardagen som jag vill belysa och kampen som kommer med den. Det är en dedikering till berättelser, outtalade sanningar som förmedlats av vänner. Jag har komprimerat dessa berättelser, utvunnit ord ur essensen från oändliga konversationer. Genom att repetera dessa ord vill jag försöka förmedla ett budskap där det visuella i varje tavla blir utgångspunkten för diskussionen.”

Casper Johansson aka Cap är en självlärd konstnär. Sedan 2007 har han levt och arbetet i Myanmar/Burma. Med flera framgångsrika utställningar och samarbeten i landet finns det nu för första gången möjlighet att se hans konst i Göteborg, Sverige på Urban Artroom. Med gummistämplar, bläckdynor och okonventionella stenciler skapar han retuscherad realism baserat på ord och bokstäver.

Hoppas vi ses på vernissage den 8:e Juni. Tavlorna kommer att hänga uppe månaden ut. Välkommen!

A Thousand Words Say More Than a Picture

“Manipulated images, fractions of a context and repetition of words thousands of times – and you start to get the whole picture. A thousand words say more than a picture at Urban Artroom is part of a prolonged testimony about transformation. I have witnessed dreams being crushed by force, hope being swept away by floods and peoples voices being ignored yet refusing to be silenced. But it is the simplicity and beauty of just existing and the everyday struggle that comes with it that I want to portray. It is a tribute to stories, untold truth by ordinary people and endless friendship. In my art I am boiling down these stories and extracting the essence from conversations to get words. By repeating these words I try to create messages, letting the paintings carry on the visual debates.”

Casper Johansson aka Cap is an autodidact artist. Since 2007 he has been living and working in Myanmar/Burma. With several successful solo- and group exhibitions and various collaborative projects with an emerging generation of Myanmar artists he has now returned to Sweden for his first exhibition outside the country. With ink pads and alphabetic rubber stamps, using multiple layered stencils, he creates what he thinks of as ‘retouched realism’ paintings based on letters and words.

Looking forward to see you at the opening on the 8th of June. The paintings will be on display until end of the month. Welcome!
