Philosophy/goal - Why invest in/support my art?

Like my father was once asked:

- «What is art?» (Someone asked)

He answered ; « Harmony. »

Till this day I could not agree more. This is what I aim to create, something uplifting that people can feel great looking at while sitting back and dreaming away into the paintings and associating it to their own stories in life, while being assured art works of quality. Read more in the « Personal Purpose of Art section »

"The art is about harmony, natural beauty, optimism, humanity and expansion of mind with great importance in the quality of how it's painted, with pittoresque brush strokes, the composition and colors.. It's generally a mix of realistic motives with consciously more abstracted surroundings, making it get a surrealistic, fresh and modern look with a timeless feel."

Personal Purpose of Art


«... Playing with contrasts, colors and composition is the main importance in these paintings. Working with acrylic is favorable for its quick time of drying, and to let the impulse flow as the current expression "wants" to be put on canvas. Inspiration comes from sounds, views and small things that are observed. Parts of photos are sometimes the basis used in the paintings by observation, but the personal style and choices around it plays a greater role, such as mentioned above. "Free effects" appear, and are sharpened by adding a covering color surface while saving parts of the contour lines. This combination between figurative realism and more abstract, almost surrealistic style, makes a sense of having two dimensions. The combination is an expression of the philosophic and sensible person inside.»

«What's always been, is yet to be seen.»

«Art itself, is timeless. Regardless of limiting yourself to a certain time epoch, or being expected to develop something new and shocking... It is about finding yourself in harmony, and being able to express that in a form of art. Using all inspiration and lessons in life to be returned in your own way. The “message” in the paintings does not necessarily have to be a political story from the news ... there is a reason why paintings are not written in words after all. Communication in other forms can speak for the soul in a different way … such as a melody, a color, the eyes of “Mona Lisa” or something we cannot quite put the finger on. It speaks in another language. A conscious choice of colors and composition put together with emotions in an advanced and devoted way with love, will let the paintings become alive ...»

«it will become art.»​
