Artists


Clara
Helmertz Cane

Growing up with a dad as an artist, Clara Helmertz Cane has always been surrounded by art. She lived in a home where one could hardly see the wooden floor since it was covered with splashes of color. Throughout her life she was told to not aspire to become an artist since it is hard to make a living out of it. At the same time, she has always followed her own dreams by doing the things she loves. In other words, Clara has chosen to study and work with design and art.

Today she paints using different forms of expressions where the process is guided by her feelings ultimately leading her to the final work. In her creations Clara uses several techniques and materials such as acrylic, oil, water, markers and crayons.


Daniel
Lundvall

Working as an Art Director at an advertising agency, Daniel Lundvall’s days' are filled with color and form, where his work often is based on specific requisites and set frameworks. Therefore, when painting he is rather drawn to the abstract and multidimensional aspects of creativity.

Daniel works with different techniques on rusty plate. Some paintings are lacquered which gives an exciting and intense color rendering. The paintings rarely have a given motive, instead Daniel strives to elicit emotions and feelings. When closely observing the paintings, you discover new dimensions in the colors, depth and structure. Daniel considers his art to be an important detail to a room that either contrasts or completes the interior.


Dano
Marr

Born and bred in Colorado, Dano paints with watercolor moments of somber contemplation and scenes of wistful fantasy. He lives in Stockholm, Sweden, where he explores with intense reflection and heartfelt longing the subtle beauty of people, nature, and life.


Ellen
Eurenius Hallgren

Originally from Stockholm, Ellen Eurenius Hallgren is a second-year student at The Faculty of Fine Arts in Bergen, Norway. Ellen´s work revolves around a fascination for found materials carrying different experiences and information. She often collects found objects, paper sheets and photographs which she reworks with a variety of materials. The process is intuitive and often contains a variation of techniques including collage, painting, drawing and sewing.

For instance, the work Culled was created using pages from books that have been sorted out of various library collections. When the found material is integrated in the work, it becomes a place where several memories start to communicate. This gives new life to the remainders of something past and distant.


Frank
Olsson

Frank Olsson, who lives and works both in Sweden and France, has painted for as long as he can remember. Since his first exhibition at Galleri Art Ide in Stockholm, in 1978, Frank has been on an exciting and challenging journey. According to Frank, the biggest challenge has been to always try out new ideas and materials, and to be open to new possibilities. He strives for always moving forward and never stopping, while at the same time finding a balance.

Today he both paints and sculptures, a combination he believes inspires his creative process in both directions. The sculptures are created in clay, bronze, steel, glass, concrete or other material. The sculptures often portrait the female body, where the shadows of simple sensual lines and graphical reliefs create the colors.


Leo
Park

The art of Leo Park reveals a wide range of influences such as graffiti, comics, Romanesque sculpture and modernistic realism.
The possibilities of narration through painting is often in focus. With a profound interest in older art movements, paired with a constant curiosity in newer ones, Leo Park creates a dynamic and eclectic imagery with roots in Western European painting tradition. A tradition that he constantly challenges, reevaluates and invades with contemporary artistic impulses. Although his art gravitates towards the figurative, there is also an interest in signs, glyphs and biomorphic metamorphosis that sometimes threaten to take over the images and make them completely abstract.

His art is often concerned with well-known themes that has been repeated throughout art history. This reoccurrence of an image, with small alterations every time, creates a kind of “rhyme” that can breed new images and stories, and work as a projection of our thoughts, dreams and desires.


Mimmi
Blomqvist

Mimmi Blomqvist has been working as an illustrator and artist for several years. At the early age of 14, she got her first order; to illustrate a tobacco pipe for a death notice in the daily newspaper... Although her art does not always reflect death, it is sometimes present as some kind of connotation.

Today, Mimmi paints in watercolor and tusch, but she also creates ceramically. For her, art is a way of expressing a feeling. "Falukorvsleoparden", the collection of works exhibited at Art Expo, was created to reflect periods of her own life, characterized by tough moments and dark thoughts. Over time, “Falukorvsleoparden” has become a best friend and she hopes that he can become a good companion to others than her.


Romina
Moradi

Romina Moradi believes there is a choice in everything you do, and her choice is to leave a mark. With her art she is hoping to inspire others to do the same. In a creative and playful way, Romina reflects the unique and complex difference between women. She defuses the predetermined perception of the female body and presents her artwork for exactly what it is - images of breasts designed and printed using water-based paint and fine art paper. Breasts are naked and powerful but also ‘Just Breasts’.
