Ake Johansson (February 22, 1959 - January 24, 2011). He was a self-taught artist who had drawn pictures since he can remember. He had taken classes in oil-painting and had created a few water-colour pieces as well.
He mainly did portraits in pencil and charcoal of celebrities from movies, as he was an admirer of the silver screen. He was just as fond of drawing portraits of people whether they´re celebrities or not.
Ake was learning more about digital painting processes (photoshop, corel draw and other computer based programs) attempting to widen his horizon about different techniques and motives.
