Me

For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated by Graffiti and above all the street art scene. When I first started out I was totally absorbed by and focused on aerosol art. It opened my eyes for other techniques other than a pen and a paper which made me discover other ways to express myself. I later moved on to hand-made stickers and posters. That made it possible for me to distribute my art in new ways. I always had my pockets full of stickers that I handed out to people I met on the streets. The next step in my artistic evolution was moving on to drawing and painting on wooden boards, buckets and other crap I could find. Soon after that I started painting on canvas as well.

In the last few years I’ve found my way back to the aerosol technique. Taking my experiences from fooling around with different techniques with me. Nowadays I do paintings and walls on comission and I have a ongoing project in a restroom at the bar and restaurant På Besök in Malmoe, Sweden. You can find pics of that under the catagory “Walls”.

My art

My art has been described as cartoonlike characters and settings with an abstract twist, and in many ways I agree. I tend to create stuff that are a bit weird. With a love for black and white I usually draw prints and illustrations in that color scheme but I also do very colorful pieces.

There’s rarely any clear message in my work. It’s a cliché but it’s true: it’s in the eyes of the beholder.

When it comes to commission work, the message and the motif is of course up to the client.
