BEHIND THE SCENES..
Stefan Johansson spent most of his life racing cars, with a 10 year career in Formula 1, driving for teams such as Ferrari and McLaren and winning the prestigiousLe Mans 24 hour race for Porsche.
In parallel he always had a strong interest in art and design.
But it wasn’t until his close friend and driver colleague Elio De Angelis was killed in a racing accident in 1986 that he decided to pick up a canvas and a brush to paint something in his honor.
This year we created a line of lifestyle products under the SJV brand. Everything is meticulously designed by Stefan Johansson. He works from his studio in Santa Monica, CA. You can expect new exciting products to be released soon!
