Ready to Hang
Culture is a living thing. Masterpieces are created and later on sampled to reflect the evolving times. Art can carry a cultural message powerful enough to topple the gripping power of a tyrant. The "Maose" is a series of seven hand painted oil-on-canvas original paintings, each a different color. The painting continues around the edges, so it is ready to hang unframed.
ICONS OF ICONS. Antti Eklund paints iconic portraits of iconic people and things. Said of Antti Eklund: "Francis Bacon coming on Andy Warhol with Keith Haring watching, a touch of Gerhard Richter and a splash of Martial Raysse, a squeeze of Yan Pei-Ming, a drop of Marlene Dumas. But, no - genuine Antti Eklund." Antti Eklund paints with oil on canvas. He also experiments with exclusive finishes like 24 karat gold leaf and oxidized copper. The 24 karat gold leaf reflects power and the spirit of classical religious "icon" paintings while illuminating the superfluous illusion we all have of ourselves. Born in Finland and trained as an Architect the former Professor of Graphic Communication has had an internationally award winning career in design before committing himself fully to art. Antti Eklund lives permanently in Baltimore, MD, USA. See more at eklundartfactory.com
