Arctic Blue, 2022
46 x 57 cm
Arctic Blue has a mix of blue and brown colors matching the wooden frame and background of the painting. With 19 heavy strokes it creates an abstract face in thick oil color, reflecting magically in different lights.
I'm a Swedish artist and Industrial Designer based in Stockholm. Daytime I work as a product designer and during my free time I paint as a hobby.
I have been painting with oil color since I was a child and I love the possibilities of texture and depth it brings. I find joy in creating the most simple motives with a few strokes and the right colors and combine it with the right frame. I find my inspiration in the space between realism and the abstract - in my paintings I want to blur the boundaries between reality and imagination, capturing emotions without exposing full facial expressions.
My oil paintings are are made to stand the test of time - every single part of the painting is made with highest quality material. All paintings are put together by hand from scratch, from stretching the canvas to customising the wooden frames.
