ABOUT ARTIST MARCUS CARLSSON
I was born in 1977 in Teckomatorp, Sweden. I discovered the painting rather late, in 2009 when I attended a 5-day summer course in drawing. From the very first moment I was in love and could not stop to sketch. At that time it was only pencil and charcoal.
In autumn 2011 I started painting with color. First painting was called simply «The fruit». It was exhibited once in Lund, Sweden. Even though I have no art educations,
I always say that I just follow my heart.
I have also worked as a photographer for over 10 years.
ARTISTIC STYLE AND INSPIRATION
Art as I do it today is a mixture of the COBRA movement and action painting of the abstract expressionism. My vision of the abstract art is the chaos and the strictness combined giving a depth to a painting and that is what I always add to any series of my paintings. When I give a name to my art I also send a message with it and that means a lot to me. There are always one or more boxes in the paintings, it comes from my background as a photographer where an image is composed of square ”pixels".
