1) You have been creating many different kinds of amazing art works such as photography, painting, illustrations, sculpture, where do you find inspiration for your art work? Glad to hear you think so. I mostly draw inspirations from my previous work, things I collect, music i listen to, ideas often spring from esoteric or occult literature or art, from old folklore, discarded objects or dreams. But most often ideas just land in my lap. Which is very convenient. And a problem - since I have to many ideas of things I wanna do and just so little time. 2) How did you start with your project? I rarely have a specific process when I start up something new. But often I find myself doing loads of smaller sketches. really ugly thumbnails sketches that looks like a monkey is let loose with pencils. But they are often sufficient enough to just get my ideas a tad clearer. 3) Is there any influence of Swedish art or artists on your creative work? There are plenty of creative ppl that sometimes spill their creative energy on me. A few musical acts/ppl that have that effect would be Ordo rosarius Equilibrio, Per Åhlund, Arcana and Desiderii Marginis, just to mention some musical acts. But I dont have any specific tendency to look at swedish acts alone, when inspiration comes, it comes. Regardless if it is from B/W Akira Kurosawa movies, russian folklore or African tribal masks. 4) Do you have a favorite color and if so why? Hah, a trick question? well, black. Or different shades of dark grey pared to black. You can always rely on dark and muted colors, and the darkest and most muted would be black. Cliché of course to like black, but I would lie if I tried to favor something else. Second best would be deep red, gold and ages silver. 5) Do you have a particular artistic vision that you apply when creating your art? I basically try to not be restrained. And I always try to pay attention to my gut felling. I am often repeating myself with my images and my sculptures. Do things I have done similar before or close to. But I try not to pay too much attention to that. Sometimes ideas have to be processed through the creative mill several times before it emerges in the best way. And you always learn something along the line.
