Kent Wahlbeck

An existentialist
Kent Wahlbeck is an adventurer who constantly explores the expressional possibilities within the actions of drawing a line or combining strokes of paint. When the process of drawing and the process of painting supports each other in a harmonic way, the final
painting becomes a colourful and striking manifestation of love and lust for life and art.

They give us a pure existentialist and discursive vision of life as a journey from innocence to wisdom, from ignorance to competence.

In collages and assemblages, he sometimes collects artifacts from his own past to show us how even the smallest and the most ignored little things can tell us about culture, nature and life. This is a sort of research within the soul.
