NIKLAS HOLMGREN b. 1974. Based in Stockholm. With his artistic origin in painting, Niklas Holmgren finished his MFA at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm in 2001. His painting which is characterized by hyperrealistic rendition alludes to years within film as a film director and scriptwriter. His evocative tableaus derive as a series of momentary fragments from everyday life, depicting inherent tensions of social interactions and hinting at the transient states of mind of ordinary people. As such, a painstaking approach with light and colour becomes a focal point in his practice, which sets out with the feat of unveiling what is generally concealed within.
