Sweden-based visual artist Miles Johnston is widely-recognized for his highly-intricate illustrations that portray surrealist subjects in various scenarios. Armed with a ballpoint pen, Johnston’s black-and-white drawings predominantly spotlight head-split female subjects with morphed features alongside visuals of thinly-drawn eyeballs, melting bodies, and unearthly objects crawling out of gaping wounds.
Johnston recently teamed up with UK-based Black Dragon Press on an edition of prints featuring a number of his signature artworks. Described as an ‘Inktober’ special, the launch encompasses a total of six letterpress prints sized at 10 x10 inches. Each edition is signed and numbered by the artist with a gallery stamp on the reverse of each piece for further authenticity.
View the prints above and purchase available prints at Black Dragon Press’s website for £30 GBP apiece (approximately $37 USD).
For more surrealist works, check out Gagosian’s upcoming group exhibition entitled “Domestic Horror” that features works by Louise Bonnet, Vaughn Spann, Lucien Smith, among others.

Thank you all for the amazing response so far. Countercurrent has sold out and the rest are not far behind, there are still a handful of people who could grab the bonus print too with the whole set. Appreciate you all so much it is because of your generosity and support that I can dedicate my life to this. Link in bio if you want one!
