Urban abstract expressionism 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.

Color interactions and the interplay of light and darkness are important to Lennartsson. By combining materials such as found fabrics Lennartsson creates a patchwork with different elements for his expressionist canvases. The unique and playful compositions range from geometrical forms to figures, objects, and pop culture icons layered over fluid gestural expressions. Because of his intuitive style, no two works are the same and each one explores something fresh and exciting.
“When I look at my paintings, I’m taken back to my childhood of endless doodling on my bedroom floor,” the artist describes.
His 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. Lennartsson has exhibited extensively in both group and solo shows across the world, including the US, Canada, Europe, Japan, and China.
