“As we paint we move along step by step. We realize that we are guided in our work by awareness of life.” ― Agnes Martin, 1979
Steps is an invitation to slow down in order to explore a subtler dimension of reality, where we can transcend our human nature, where two successive moments are never exactly the same, where we continually feel held and supported, and where each step, even if insignificant in appearance, can reveal unbounded peace.

Johan is an electronic musician, graphics engineer and generative artist. Born and raised in Paris, he moved to California in his early 20s to learn programming. Diving into the field of computer graphics allowed him to start applying his technical skills to visual artistic endeavors. His work, inspired by artists like Agnes Martin and Paul Klee, invites the audience to slow down by exploring the space where the abstract and textural meet the minimal. Besides generative art, you can find him making ambient music and live visuals as one half of the project Night Sea.
