About me

I was born in Sweden and grew up in Switzerland, where I studied at the art academies in Zürich and Basel.

Since childhood, I have had a passionate interest for human rights, which can be discovered in many of my works. During my studies in Basel I founded the international artist group “Artumult” with members from India, Iran, Japan, Nigeria, Colombia, Bolivia, Switzerland and Sweden, to discuss cultural identities through art. 

As an artist, I want to remain free in my expression and in the materials I work with. Writing, drawing, painting, sculpting, and particularly installation art, depending on what I need to communicate. I am very fond of interdisciplinary collaborations, which can result in photography, experimental film and sound, music and even performance/happenings.

Life itself, in which death plays an essential part. Also philosophy, mythology and dreams.
