Johan Ahlström

I work as an artist in the Halland region and since 2019 also in the Stockholm area. Since the spring of 2015, I have been part of Dramalogen's cultural entrepreneur network and worked with various artistic workshops and courses for new arrivals and school students; among other things in “Creative School project”. During the years 2016-2017, I ran together with drama teacher Charlotte Libäck "Dramalogen's Culture House", which was aimed at people suffering from mental illness.

In recent years, the focus has been more on art exhibitions and art projects, including in collaboration with Halmstad Municipality and Region Halland.

I am educated in art and architecture and work with art pedagogical assignments in parallel with my own artistic activities which included sculpture, painting and installations.

I also take smaller architectural assignments and do building permit drawings, site analyzes, architectural illustrations, design assignments etc.

If you are interested in hiring me or want to know more about my work, you are welcome to contact me. The contact information can be found below.
