Johansen was born on January 5th 1893 in Copenhagen, Denmark. After attending The Technical School (Copenhagen) he was admitted to The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1913 (studying under the famous Julius Paulsen) and graduated from there in 1920. He made several study tours to France. In recognition of his talent and expressionist work, he won the Ronge Prize in 1920 and the Serdin-Hansen Prize in 1931. He debuted at the esteemed Charlottenborg Spring Exhibitions in 1916 and exhibited there almost continuously until 1964. He was also a frequent exhibitor at the Artists Fall Exhibitions (1917-19), 1924-26 and 1928-32) and at the Charlottenborg Fall Exhibitions (1922, 1931 and 1938). Johansen was presumably highly influenced by his teacher, Julius Paulsen. Initially he made a broad range of interiors with knitting old women or sewing young girls but later he turned to landscapes and picturesque town and cityscapes.
