The art of
johan melanton

My art is about the mystery of life.
Aiming at a humouros but still serious look on the human condition.
Relations, satire and spirituality are some frequent topics.
Favourite tools are pen and ink. Watercolors and acrylics.
Besides painting and cartooning, I also work as an illustrator.


I grew up in Viggbyholm, north of Stockholm, Sweden.

At University I studied Film and English, then continued to the Graphic Institute.

Thereafter I attended Konstfack, the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design.

During the years I have exhibited drawings, paintings and sculpture at galleries and museums.
