Konstnär: Jonas Pehrsson

Jonas Pehrsson was born in 1971. He is a self-taught artist who paints both abstract and figurative. He lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.

Pehrsson's portraits are direct with a marked fragility. But under layers of color, ambiguities in the facial features can be discovered and turn beauty into complete despair. Exciting contrasts are created by mixing the soft and fine with the raw peeled. The effect is dirty sheer.

Pehrsson's art explores what happens when you take self-awareness out of the creative process to enable a more honest expression. His art captures a large number of emotions and often arouses strong reactions in the viewer.

“My work is a fast internal process. When I paint, I am completely in the present and in my own world. I have no rules in my painting but do what feels right at the moment. I believe that overthinking can destroy originality. My portraits are not about realism, perfection, gender or race. They try to capture the qualities and emotions that are often hidden from view, ”says Jonas Pehrsson.

Pehrsson's work is captivating, exciting and strangely attractive. Each portrait has a delicate, melancholy expression. Due to the rough application of paint, the fragile penetrates layer after layer. His abstract paintings offer a deep personal recognition of the subject, despite the fact that the answers to the questions are left to the viewer.
