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 prestigious
Le Mans 24 hour race for Porsche.
He spent over 30 years racing at the highest levels of Motorsport where he continuously tried to perfect the craft of driving a race car at the limits of it’s performance.
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.
34 years later this has evolved into a new way of life and he now spends the same time and focus to perfect the craft of being an Artist as he used to when he was racing, creating new paintings and designs from his studio in Santa Monica, California.
