Self-help guides by Johan Deckmann

Words by Marvin Maddix

 

 

Charlottenborg, Copenhagen based artist Johan Deckmann unveils his seres of self-help book covers. The books’ subdued shades and visible textures recall vintage self-help guides from the 1960s and 1970s, while Deckmann’s pithy expressions spotlight the irony, beauty and tragedy of daily life. “I want to stimulate the imagination of the viewer and maybe even bring some awareness. I want the words to be like mirrors.”

“The right words can be like good medicine,” says the Danish artist and practising psychotherapist, Johan Deckmann. Best known for his series of imaginary self-help guides, Deckmann combines humour, observation and accessible visual language to tackle everyday existential dilemmas.
