Anton Strandgren

aka artbyanton__

Anton is a self taught artist working primarily with acrylics and charcoal.

Anton usually creates what he calls “emotional memories”: paintings representing feelings from the past.

He sees his work as a visual journal and doesn’t mind what many call “negative” emotions, instead he tries to portray those scary, unmanageable and painful feelings to be able to accept them as a part of life.

These pieces are a representation of the exact moment when you lose consciousness and all control.

“Not everyone is an artist but everyone is a fucking critic.”

Marcel Duchamp
