Leo Park (b. 1980) works and lives in Stockholm. He holds an MFA from Konstfack College of Arts, Craft and Design. He has taken place in several shows as both artist and curator as well as completed public decorations in Sweden and abroad. Leo Park sources motifs and stylistic influence from art history and fuses them with pop cultural references to form a figurative style of painting that is undoubtedly contemporary yet relatable in its connection to artistic traditions. His visual world is inhabited by well-known myths and tropes in which themes such as desire, creation and death are explored. Park is guided by a yearning for the universal in art. A timelessness and boundlessness where the painting’s essence can be interpreted freely and by many.
