Queen Elizabeth II has done a fabulous job as Queen. She was groomed for the job from the day she was born. I´m sure she´s extremely happy and comfortable with her life and family. ... but still I sometimes wonder if she EVER just wanted a day to chill out? Just chew on some gum or something? I have been painting portraits for years. I started my "Icons of Icons” concept by adding gold leaf to the background, resembling religious icons. I then dove into my "Gold Portraits” once I swapped the oil paint for the background and the gold leaf for the actual portrait. My series of “Bold Portraits” started when I decided to drop out everything extra, like the gold and most colors. By going through my paintings several times with a very small brush they look finished AND have a relaxed sketchy feel. In addition to oil paints and gold leaf I often use an ultra black acrylic paint, one that absorbs 99% of visible light. Synopsis: I paint iconic people and topics that have had an impact on me or our society. I paint oil on canvas, but in my BOLD portraits I also use a ultrablack matt acrylic paint. The painting is signed on the back and has my “e” symbol on the front. My paintings always continue around the sides, so they can be hung unframed.

"When the world becomes a massive mess with nobody at the helm, it's time for artists to make their mark." - Joni Mitchell I paint to illuminate injustice and expose the abuse of power. My goal is to encourage and inspire people to take action for positive change. We all have a voice, my art is mine. After an award winning international career in design I switched my creative passion entirely into art - my deepest lifelong passion. Said of Antti Eklund: "Francis Bacon coming on Andy Warhol with Keith Haring watching, a touch of Gerhard Richter and a splash of Martial Raysse, a squeeze of Yan Pei-Ming, a drop of Marlene Dumas. But, no - genuine Antti Eklund."
