A little sad announcement

Dear friends of ART MONSTERS OF SWEDEN!  Due to all kinds of circumstances, MONSTER TEAN have decided to take a little break with our effort to run ART MONSTERS OF SWEDEN (which is the starting point of the Swedish lowbrow & dark art movement). We WILL be back!

Our original idea was to introduce obscure art genres like lowbrow, pop surrealism, dark art etc on the Swedish art scene because it has been non-existent – and at the same time create a community for Swedish artists who felt at home in our ambition. Our ambition was to arrange curated group shows with amazing Swedish artists within these genres, however, this turned out to be extremely difficult. The Swedish art world did not welcome our movement.

We will now take a break from running this project and collect new energy before we continue our (important) movement. Like all journeys it can take you to new and unexpected places.

Gratitude to my fans

This photo was taken in Stockholm 2010, the year I got burned out and got really lost within myself. I couldn’t make art, my creativity got blocked, I stopped believing in myself and slipped into a deep depression. I did not get any support from people close to me, so I was completely alone in the horrible experience of losing myself and my creativity (and a big part of my career as a result).

In 2014, after I was sexually assaulted in my sleep (in my own bed by my boyfriend at the time) I had to leave my old life behind. Since I had no income, it was a very difficult time and for a year I was without a home, crashing on my parent’s couch. I had lost everything a person could possibly lose.

It has taken me about 10 years to build a new life for myself, to build a new relationship to myself, to my body – and to my precious art. I also found new and wonderful friends along the way, and a man who truly loves me.  Next year will be my comeback year as an active artist. I can’t wait! I am so grateful for all the support you guys have showed me during these hard years, it has kept me alive. I won’t ever forget that. Thank you.

Dark Surrealists United

I have some great news to share with you all!  I am currently building a platform for some of the most talented dark surrealists in the world called DARK SURREALISTS UNITED!
I’ve had many dreams in my life – and one of them is the dream of being a writer / journalist and it’s time to catch this dream now – so I am creating a site that will feature interesting interviews with some of your favorite artists and creators of dark and surreal art! At the moment I am juggling interview work with 9 different artists (Nihil, Nathalia Suellen, Jim Kazanjian, Aeron Alfrey, Richard Hoefle etc) This might take a while to finish up, but you have all something really great to look forward to! I believe we all need a break from the reality of real life and just have some fun and enjoy some amazing art! So – stay tuned…

My new logotype!

Here is my new logotype! It’s not perfect yet but it works for now. In 2020 I will make my comeback in the art world after being on a long (very long) hiatus after I got burned out. I am starting over, with a new business, new exciting collections and many fun new projects – and  a new logo to boot!
