About Tommy Lennartsson

Tommy Lennartsson creates unique and playful compositions that entice the viewer to use their imagination to decipher what is the artist’s intention, which is layered and presented through his mixed media work.
By combining materials - found fabrics - Lennartsson creates a patchwork with different elements of sewn fabrics for his expressionist canvases.
On top of these canvases Lennartsson lays down different layers with acrylic, charcoal, spraypaint, markers, pastel and airbrush.


Impulsive Process:
Colour interactions and the interplay of light and darkness are important to Lennartsson. Because of his intuitive style, no two works are the same and each one explores something fresh and exciting.



Abstract Characters:
Lennartsson’s vibrant, playful and boldly aesthetic paintings draw the viewer into a strange new universe. He is able to capture the imagination of the viewer with his fantastical abstract creatures and figures. The innovative way in which Lennartsson explores patterns, forms and figures lends a new dimension to formerly recognisable objects.



Lennartsson has exhibited extensively in both group and solo shows in his native Sweden. His paintings belong to private collections all around the world,
