Fredrik Söderberg’s Frenetic Watercolor Paintings

by Andy SmithPosted on

The massive, frenetic scenes painted by Fredrik Söderberg pull from mythology and art history. Using watercolors and taking notes from cultures across the globe, he uses a knack for lush environments to pull together otherwise disparate elements.

“In life and art, Fredrik Söderberg has always taken a keen interest in questions of faith, ethics and the shortcomings of human beings, searching for a deeper understanding of the mechanisms behind human behaviour and its implications in a historical context,” a statement says. “Art history, philosophy, spirituality and existential queries infuse Söderberg’s artistic process and serve as a backdrop for his work. His oeuvre encompasses skilfully executed watercolours, abstract paintings and richly illustrated publications.”

Works such as “Krigarens väg / The Warrior’s Path” (above), blend the gruesome with the elegant. See more of the artist’s work below.
