1944 · Sweden
The Swedish painter Kent Iwemyr primarily works in small and medium-sized formats, depicting daily life around him. In numerous scenes of everyday life, he draws on an unusual aesthetic coupled with a fine sense of irony and allusive titles. With his figurative painting, Iwemyr consciously positions himself beyond an academic professionalism as dictated by art history in the representation of people and landscapes. The arrangement of perspective and the anatomy of figures step into the background in favour of an ‘unschooled’ pictorial language.
