Swedish artist Tommy Lennartsson draws on the visual culture of street and pop art when creating his original vibrant mixed-media artworks. He employs a mix of abstract and figurative elements that give nods to neo-expressionism, faux-naїf, pop, and geometric abstraction schools of art. Lennartsson builds up his canvases with charcoal, acrylic, ink, and spray paint, and occasionally sews and stitches elements together to create striking scenes that ignite the viewer’s imagination.
By combining materials such as found fabrics, Lennartsson creates a patchwork with different elements for his expressionist canvases. The unique and playful compositions entice the viewer to use their imagination to decipher the artist’s intention.
Lennartsson's work has been featured in the Spanish arts and culture magazine Lamono and was selected as the cover art for the Spring 2019 issue of New England Review. He has exhibited extensively in both group and solo shows and has caught the attention of collectors from across the world, including the US, Canada, Europe, Japan, and China.
