About the artist:

Emil Öhlund, born 1985 in Valdemarsvik, Sweden - Lives and works in Örebro, Sweden. Studied at Örebro Art College between 2009 and 2012. Works particuarly with acrylics and brushes.

It is all my memories and impressions from my childhood particularly, somehow blending together in my head, that transform into my work. When I was a kid, all the characters from cartoons, toys & video games, felt alive. In my work, I want to capture that exact feeling again, not just for me, but also for others. A sort of escapism, to allow yourself to go to other dimensions and fantasy worlds to gather power to deal with the not-always-so-pleasant reality.
Through the composition of bright and playful colors, I want to awaken feelings for the beholder, and throw them into that secure and simpler world, one that it is utterly important for me.
