Richard Johanssons visual expression takes inspiration from the filtered aesthetics of the advertising world. He approaches it with a critical point of view on idealization. Folk art can also be seen as a source of inspiration for the artist, both in subjects and in the implementation. In 2018 Johansson founded his own mobile Folk Art Museum.
