GUNILLA WIK , born 1936

The name of the painting: "He who stepped out of his soul…" (105 × 85 cm)

Education Hovedskous painting school 1955-58

Valand Academy of the Arts 1959-64

Represented at the National Museum in Stockholm, Gothenburg Art Museum, municipalities and county councils.

I have over 400 art photos on Instagram, have been an active artist for over 60 years and had about 50 own exhibitions + group exhibitions (every year).

My biggest source of inspiration is nature, animals, weather, scents, color and processed in my imagination they can get unexpected shapes and expressions. Nothing is too small to start something big!

I have used most materials, but for the past 20 years I have worked with acrylic paint combined with pencil and linoleum print in one and the same image - mixed media. Finds a great pleasure to cut in linoleum tiles and then print in many colors on top of each other so that it becomes a pattern. These cutsor I then tear into pieces and paste them into the picture I am working on. I also paste cartoon elements.

It's an adventure!

JENNY WIK , born 1962 in Gothenburg.

I work as an illustrator and artist. When I make illustrations, I use watercolor paints and ink. In my other paintings I mostly work in acrylic or oil but also mix many different materials. I am inspired by old photos, newspaper pictures, dreams and sometimes I just want to let the colors meet completely abstractly as in an improvised piece of music.

I have studied at Hovedskous Målarskola, KV: s Konstskola and HDK.

I have illustrated seventeen children's books, five of which are completely my own, and illustrated in magazines since the year 2000. I have participated in several group exhibitions and solo exhibitions.
