Bio

Johanna Helmuth, born 1992 in Manila, is a contemporary Filipino visual artist. She graduated with a degree in Fine Arts Advertising from the Technological University of the Philippines. She mostly paints subjects that reflect on human behavior, social values and standards. Her strokes are fearless, aggressive , gaining confidence in the palette knife more than the brush. She chooses mostly earth and muted hues in her paintings, evoking a somber mood behind highly textured surfaces. In recent exhibitions, she has been constantly expanding her artistic expression through experimentation with installation and video.
