Art has long existed around Gunilla Wistrand. She first trained as a sociologist and studied for 5 years at Dômens Konstskola in Gothenburg. During that time, she developed her skills and art gained a central place in her life.

Later in life, Gunilla became interested in larger and deeper issues of life. She then took a medium education and Gunilla’s art have since been inspired by what the universe says her – the symbols that the universe gives. She calls it auto writing and sees some of hers works as a development of the expression of which Hilma af Klint pioneered in. “I get some tips from universe, ”says Gunilla.

Although this inspiration has developed her creativity, art has always been present. Gunilla has been close to her creativity throughout her life. Colors and shapes have long been important; ”without color, art is not so fun, ”says Gunilla. The combination of color and shape has always encouraged her and she has also been interested in sculpture.

Gunilla Wistrand currently uses mainly watercolor and gouache – techniques which she considers being best suited for what she wants to express with her art. She has previously exhibited in both Gothenburg and Varberg but are currently in the process of developing her newfound expression.
