About the artist
Marcus Gunnar Pettersson was born in a small town in the middle of Sweden. He currently attends Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, in Stockholm.
“I have always seen myself as someone who creates. And I’ve always loved to create. There isn’t much in life that can compete with that, except for loving. And my love for creation is important.
“I find it very hard to know what inspires me. It is more like a feeling that is floating inside, without knowing what the reason for it is. It’s almost like I get inspired by the inspiration itself. I like watching things grow, like nature. And I like awkward moments too, like when you accidentally say something inappropriate and there’s suddenly a weird and painful silence in the room. I love that. Don’t know why. Maybe I am provocative in social situations.
“I feel down to earth, and at the same time not at all. As I said before, I love nature and I love people, which is why I always draw at cafés. So that I can meet people and drink my coffee. My style is like people and nature: organic. And occasionally creepy.
“I try to be open minded. I work with chance, making coffee stains and trying to draw something out of it. Exercises for the mind. I love what I do, and I’m just going along that track. I don’t know were I will end up, or what the future looks like. After all, I’m just someone who creates…”
