BE READY TO BE CHANGED
Public art

My strategies include transforming spaces typically at the margin of 
our senses in overflowing and compassionate visual experiences.

In 2017 I was one of 27 Swedish artists commissioned by the project ArtMadeThis to decorate a public space for property developer Vasakronan. I was assigned a 80sqm garage entrance at Vasakronan’s headquarters in central Stockholm.




This has been a first occasion to translate my visual language into public art and in big scale. 
I worked at the intersection 
between abstract and figurative, using metaphors and ambiguity to make the reader active participant and final component of the work.

Each bystander can make a different sense of the painting.

Both text and image invite to active thought and to a transformative experience. The work stays open to interpretation and in dialogue with 
the reader, in a fluid exchange.



Starting with a sketch and color palette, I then painted directly on the surface. As my approach to the decorative includes letting the work speak as it grows, most details where decided on site as the work progressed.


The work took careful planning, quick execution and took 4 days to complete. Text on the door says:Be Ready / To Be Changed
