Jonsson was born in San Jose, California. In his formative years he studied at School of Visual Arts, New York City, advancing his undergraduate work. During that time he developed an interesting habit of signing his artwork using the old spelling of his grandfather's name (that is, the spelling before it was changed to its Americanized version, Johnson, at Ellis Island where his grandfather immigrated). He has created accomplished works of art in many mediums over the past twenty-plus years, is known primarily for trompe l'oeil mural paintings, and has exhibited in gallery and non-gallery shows in New York, Washington, DC, San Francisco, and Oakland (CA).

Description: Imagined Realism: ERIC JOHNSON aka JONSSON: The Fine Art of Imaginatiion
Jonsson's artistic journey began with what he jokingly refers to as his first 'mural experience at age 5. He transformed his parents expensive Living Room wallpaper by applying red crayon to greenish wallpaper. He was heavily influenced by his father who was a NASA Flight Simulation Specialist responsible for training astronauts for the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo space flights. The time spent visiting Nasa Ames with his father was inspirational in many ways; he learned to use his imagination, and to dream that anything is possible. At age fifteen he was encouraged by a talented exhibiting artist to pursue drawing, which he did informally until entering college.
