Roger Akesson

Malmö, Malmö, Sweden

I am a 54 year old Swedish painter. My intention isn't to paint realistic. I want to put my spin on things, to explore, to have fun with color and shapes. Exploring new ways to do it. I try to balance a loose style with keeping things graphic and simple. I use black and white lines a lot, defining the objects. I draw inspiration from many different styles and artists. Among others Van Gogh, Andy Warhol, Cornelius McCarthy, Wayne Thiebaud and I get inspiration every day from other painters on Daily Paintworks.
