"Supermaose" represents power. Powerful leaders use their powers for all good. They usually also have the ability to laugh at themselves. Those who abuse their power do not. That´s why they are laughed at, not with. I paint portraits of people who have made an impact - on me on our society. My iconic oil-on-canvas paintings try to illuminate injustice and to expose the abuse of power. My goal is to encourage and inspire people to take action for a positive change. “We all have a voice, my art is mine.” I have been painting oil-on-canvas portraits for years. I started my "Icons of Icons” concept by adding gold leaf to the background, resembling religious icons. Then I swapped the oil paint for the background and the gold leaf for the actual portrait for my "Gold Portraits”. My “Bold Portraits” started when I decided to drop out everything extra, like the gold and most colors. I go through the painting several times with a very small brush in order to give it a relaxed sketchy feel while it still feels finished and refined. Now I sometimes paint hybrids of my “bold” paintings and “icons” by adding gold leaf for the background. Synopsis: I paint iconic people and topics that have had an impact on me or our society. I paint oil on canvas, but I often use also gold leaf or ultrablack matt acrylic paint for effect. 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."
