ART CULTURE

Artist Highlight; Johan Deckmann artist and psychotherapist

Johan Deckmann’s Art Therapy series combines his two professions: artist and psychotherapist. Using books found in antique shops as a canvas, he transforms the covers into satirical self-help titles, imagining a new narrative for them based on his observations of human behaviour (but never on his patients). “Art is a good platform for psychological interaction or awareness,” he says. “As I see it, I make only one half of the work – the other half is done in your head.”
