ANTTI EKLUND - PAINTER OF PORTRAITS
Artist Antti eklund has a passion for paintings two kinds of portraits:
Icons of icons - bold and impactful portraits of public figures that include thought provoking meaningful messages.
Icons of personalities - commissions and non-commissions of impactful individuals bared of all possessions into classic masterpiece settings.
When Eklund returned to his earliest passion, art, he challenged himself with the hardest task he could imagine - faces and oil paints. That´s why he started painting portraits with oils.
A gallery of works finished works in actual collector settings. It´s always fun to see what the paintings look like in their new environments as hung by their new loving owners.
Since many of you only get to see the finished paintings, artist Eklund would love to share images of the privileged thrill he gets to experience painting the pieces.
Selected works on imaginary walls for your inspiration! ... on gallery walls and public settings ... and sketches in fictitious places - just to illustrate the potential of the paintings.
