b. Copenhagen, Denmark 1985
Atelier: Gedser, Denmark
Lars Ahlstrand was born in 1985 in Copenhagen, Denmark. His latest paintings visualize influences from the Bengal, Indian nature. Lars Ahlstrand has visited West Bengal for 25 years, and has previously been influenced by both the Bengal landscape, life in the tribal villages and the contrast to life in the city of Kolkata. The imagery has been simplified and you can clearly sense in the well-crafted images that Ahlstrand is in a fine new development.
“My style has evolved over the years. But I have always mixed my own paint based on carefully selected pigments I buy on my travels. I lived and painted in India for almost a decade. Now I am based in Copenhagen, where I paint in my studies in Copenhagen and Gedser and draw on inspiration from a lifetime of abstract painting ”.
