about

I was born in Norrköping, Sweden in 1989 and moved to Stockholm to study art at preparatory schools Nyckelviksskolan and Gerlesborgsskolan between the years of 2009-2012. I got my Bachelors Degree at Konstfacks Fine Arts Department in the year 2015. In the beginning of 2016 I was asked by the Stockholm Public Transport "SL" to show a piece at the Metro Station Odenplan in Stockholm. I created the installation called ”I Wish This Was On My Way To Somewhere”, the installation was later asked by Stockholm Läns Museum to take part in the group show ”Medan du väntar”.

 

In the fall of 2016 i was commissioned to create the artistic interior for one of the new floors at Södersjukhuset (Stockholm), and started my Masters at Konstfacks Fine Arts Department. In 2018 I participated in the group show ”Haceiendo Contexto” in Lima, Peru and I got my Masters Degree in Fine Arts at Konstfack. For my examination project I was awarded a grant that gives me a free studio for a whole year, a stipend from the Swedish Royal Art Academy and also got to be on of the two students to represent konstfack at Art in the alps Youth Biennale, Brixen/bressanonne Italy. This year I have participated in group shows at Low Gallery in Oslo, Norway and also at Steinsland Berliner, Stockholm, Sweden.
