Biography / Linnea Strid

Swedish artist Linnea Strid creates hyper-realistic oil paintings exploring the darker side of human psyche conveyed through water as one of her main subjects. Inspired by human emotions, hyper-realistic oil paintings depict issues of mortality, fear of living and dying, anxiety and loneliness in situations involving water. Her work is featured as a part of the opening of the URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

Her artwork has been likened to her obsession with painting water in different shapes and forms, often combining with both honest and painfully exposed portraits. Therefore she is working patiently for hours with tiny details and plays with reflections, light and shadows. Strid was born in a small village in Sweden in 1983. At the age of 16 she moved to Spain, where her passion for art developed. In 2003 she had her first solo show, since then her work has been exhibited all over Europe, the US, Asia and Australia. Strid lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.
