Fredrik Akum is a Swedish artist born in 1987, raised in Kristinehamn, living and working in Gothenburg. His style is a mix of intention and spontaneous interaction with the fluid materials he uses on canvas or panels. In his watery paintings he flows freely between reality and daydreaming.
I like to work with liquid paint; a lot of water, inks and acrylics, so some parts of the painting is more or less uncontrollable. So parts of the painting will be working with each other without my full determination. There is something akin to Polaroid film in this. You have the material and the motif, but to control the outcome is not always possible.
