Meet the Artist

Franz Johansen

Franz, a renowned Utah artist, was born in Huntsville, Utah, and lived until his death in Provo. He received his BA and MA in sculpture and painting from Brigham Young University, with advanced studies pursued at the Illinois Institute of Technology—School of Design in Chicago, The Academi de la Grande Chaumiere, in Paris, and the University of Miami Biology Institute in Florida. Franz taught in the Art Department at BYU for 33 years. His European training, and the influence of the theology of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, were evident in his ongoing exploration of the human figure within the theme of resurrection.
