Born 1989 in Eskilstuna, Sweden and raised in several European counties including Italy and Poland. A self-taught artist, graduated from Malardalen University in Eskilstuna, Sweden with a bachelor degree in innovation and a bachelor of engineering degree in product design. A word that could be used to summarize my art is “contrast”. Both when it comes to the visual aspect of it and the themes that I tend to depict. Visually, I often mix smooth details with bold brushstrokes, flat surfaces with textures and layers. At the same time what I am trying to discuss through my work is the mental state of the human being, its condition, yet in order to discuss it, I like to use the physical form – the body. In other words, I would like to discuss the inner state or condition of the human being using the outer, physical form as a medium. My figures are often deformed in this way or another, their bodies often seem raw and unstable. The figures that I depict are often suspended in rather unfamiliar environments. One of the themes I like to discuss is the relation between the environment and the person, however it is the person I want to focus on in this relation. An important part of my process is the balance between the conscious and unconscious part of it, by which I mean that my primary vision of a painting can be drastically changed in the process in a way of an unconscious improvisation. At the same time the composition as a whole is thought through and planned.
