Johan Lowie is an award winning professional artist living and working in Frederick, MD. He has a MFA from the Royal Academy in Ghent Belgium and has been an designer and painter.
Johan’s two passions have always been art and the mind.
These are passions he continues to combine in his work. Observations of the surroundings, personal stories or reflection on peoples behavior are his main subjects.
Lowie starts out sketching ideas and work towards a particular mood, the mood of the story. In the course of the depiction he is eliminating unnecessary elements and captures that mood with a simplicity of imagery.
He has shown extensively in Europe and the US. Exhibits include; Kunsthaus and Sphinx Galleries in Belgium, 8RMS4Gallery and the Rothenberg gallery in Syracuse NY., Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and more.
Museum shows include: Frostburg Museum, Museum of New Art, The Gilchrest Museum and Carroll Museum.
Mr Lowie was a NOMA gallery member for the first part of 2015.
