Björn Sjögren, abstract painter - with an interesting bio

Art with meaning, art with content and,  sometimes even art  with soul 


I create images using my life experiences, often mixed with my current internal feelings and a kind of simplicity of Scandinavian design. 

The title is placed under the image to allow words to interact with the previous design: the viewer's brain produces the entire image.

How long does it take me to make one of my pieces? A lifetime: all my experiences have shaped the way I create. 

In the 32 years since I started painting, I have heard comments on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean from people who find traces of long gone masters in my art. While it is flattering to receive these comments, I would like to point out that I have never studied the forms of expression/impression of any artist. In fact, I never attended an art class or studied art history. I briefly attended a drawing class, to understand how to draw the human body with the correct proportions, etc., but the class bored me and I left it ...

Looking back at my art, I realize that many of the individual pieces are time documents of my place in life. 

This is the way I paint. Each piece is original. And like my life, it never gets boring ...
