Fredrik Åkum

The art of  Fredrik Åkum brings you to the midst of a Swedish summer. Using both soft and sharp colours, Fredrik creates paintings from photo fragments that appear to have been exposed to the sun for a long, long time. The paints he uses are very wet, making the colours blend easily. This leads to stunning results; in a very playful and unique style, the summer shots he creates seem to originate from a dream. Or perhaps from a memory, showing only fragments that matter, have remained fresh, and deserve to be reflected in a beautiful, idealized context.

Fredrik Åkum lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden.
