Collection: Hampus Karlsson

Painting has become an important part of Hampu's language since he lost the ability to speak and became partially paralyzed after an accident. But even before that he was a graffiti artist who spread his paintings in both legal and illegal places. The basis is spray paint in almost everything he does, but he also supplements with markers, brushes and sponges. Hampus also makes some collages. Want to say that he works with mixed technology today. The artist is inspired by everything related to graffiti. Life in general largely controls what he paints. Hampus paints based on emotions, so it can be anything from daily form to deeper thoughts.
