Mark Johnsen (b. 1986, San Diego, CA) is a printmaker living in Northern California. He draws his inspiration from childhood fishing trips to the Eastern Sierras of California and is fascinated by the intersection of natural elements. By using the Monotype process he works reductively to scratch or wipe away extra information to reveal a clearer image. Much like his memories, the process caters to the images that are produced. Mark holds a degree in Photography from California College of the Arts (2012) and has exhibited and lead workshops domestically as well as The United Kingdom, Istanbul, Japan, Canada, and New Zealand. In 2015 he collaborated with The North Face Japan to make a series of prints depicting the most geologically diverse highway in The United States, U.S. Route 395.
