My name is Emil Sydhagen and I was born and raised in Falköping, Sweden, where I still reside.
My first choice of medium is oil painting because of the material’s flexibility and its possibilities to experiment with different expressions. It is something I have felt comfortable working with since I was a child. I also work with Gouache, Watercolor and Ink. My artistic influences comes from various places but mostly from many well-known artist like Picasso, Miró, Rembrandt, Goya and the Surrealists. I also take inspirations from History, Literature and from Nature and urban settings.
I am mostly self-taught but I have studied at Hjo Art School and I took a bachelor degree in Cultural science (Kulturvetenskap), focusing on Art, in Linköping University.
