Interview with artist Marcus Carlsson

Art as I do today is a mixture of Cobra art “abstract art” and action painting “abstract expressionist”.My expression in the abstract art is chaos and strict.

Tell us about yourself and what you do
Marcus Carlson, born in 1977 in Sweden “Teckomatorp. I’m a very new artist and discovered painting rather late, began with a 5-day summer course in drawing in 2009, I was in love and could not stop sketching. It was just pencil and charcoal. In autumn 2011, I started painting with color and made my first color paintings called just fruit, with a exhibition once in Lund. (Sweden). I have no educations in art, but as I said, I just follow my heart. I have also worked with photographers for over 10 years, even there I am self taught. Now I have my studio / gallery in Ystad, located in southern Sweden.

Who influenced you as an artist? 
Art as I do today is a mixture of Cobra art “abstract art” and action painting “abstract expressionist”.My expression in the abstract art is chaos and strict, makes the depth in the painting and there is always a given in any series or painting that I paint. I always give a name to my art or my series, as always find a message, and that means something to me. There are always one or more boxes in the paintings, it is my background as a photographer. An image composed of squares “pixels”!

What is the best and worst part of being an artist?

What is the best and worst thing about being an artist. The worst is that you are afraid of ideas will run out and you can not create more art. the best part is that it’s such a freedom to create.

What’s your favorite piece of work that you have created? 
 My best work is the series the drop, the painting that you have with the blog. There is a depth and feel that make it 3D. It’s difficult to say that one is my favorite! There are some paintings that I can’t let go for the sale or exhibiton.
