Collection: Annika Wessmark

Annika Wessmark is a multifaceted artist who lets the artistic expression follow her inner and outer needs. She wants to explore and develop her artistic expression, but in between, Annika is captured by an idea and stays in it with the possibility of deepening.

This has caused her painting technique to shift from realism to fantasy, from vibrant color combinations to a more restrained black and white palette.

"I have so many ideas and combinations that want to be painted and by doing that I get to show who I am".

Right now, she is investigating the magic of the gaze and how it affects the viewer who encounters it. Annika mainly paints in acrylic, oil and charcoal. She lives and creates her art in an old school outside Kil.

TRAINING

Annika is largely self-taught, but over the years has taken several art courses both at university and within various study associations. During the years 2005-2010, she worked as a cultural informant within a municipality but has mainly worked as a dentist alongside his artistry. However, from 2022 she will focus entirely on her art.
