The genius visions of self taught artist Jonni Ekdahl show the audience that to create without limitations, rules or control is, infact creativity in its purest sense. Having had no professional art training gives this true renaissance-man the encouragement and freedom to simply create from his heart instead of trying to find a balance between educational training and personal expressions. The result is breath-taking and a treat for the viewers eyes. We had the opportunity to interview the man behind the unique visions.
My core & concept with my art is surrealistic with traces of reality.
Very close as my creative process is unknown to me before i start, If my plan was to paint a car, tree or something real, it would be easy to explain.
Salvador Dali, Wilhelm Freddy amongst others.
Most of my works stands out by themselves, i haven’t done the perfect one yet...and even if i had , how could i know it was this one?
I would like to communicate to my audience, that they have to use their imagination to understand what i mean with the painting.
This is not an easy task as everyone has their own imagination
From a professional view my goal is to surprise my ordience with new spectacular images, and also to get more time to relax and reflect on what im doing, as i also runs a company in a another branch.
Painting is a way for me to relax the creative brain side when i work and vice versa when i paint.
