About The Artwork

I love the freedom of imagination, uninhibited joy and liberal behavior that Tove Jansson represents. Her figures and stories are for children, but her message is for us adults. For special reasons I have a special place for Lilla My in my heart - as it happens, even my current cat happens to be called Lilla My ... and her brother Hemuli. I have been painting 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 sometimes I use 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."
