Anna Sophia Rydgren
Anna Sophia Rydgren is a minimalistic visual artist that has a studio near Stockholm called Ary Art. Her love for drawing and painting started at a very early age, as she grew up in a home where her creativity was enforced by painting, using clay, or modifying textiles. She was influenced by her grandmother, who made oil paintings and collages with fabric, and by the Scandinavian minimalistic design, to create her own artistic expression.
Her inspiration comes from nature, such as bodies, faces or organic forms, that she conveys in her works, by making simple structures, with monochromatic colour palettes and pastel tones. Often her works are the result of an intuitive flowing of emotions, that pretend to give the viewer a sensation of calm and harmony.
