If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Also an art critic and writer - in Swedish and English - covering more of the important art events and published here and there - also on my website or Blogg - www.pegren.com/blogg.html
About my artwork
Since a long time rather abstract ideas in my painting - mostly in oil. Since 3 years I work on ideas and impressions I get from ZEN - a chinese/japanese word for meditation/contemplation, with no reference to Zen-Buddism at all. Right now I am working with a thematic series of paintings called "Poems at end of words.."
Artists I like
Chagall, Dali, Max Ernst, Renoir, Weidemann (Norwegian),Miro, Matisse, Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Siqueiros, Orozco, Rufino Tamayo etc.
Classic music, Jazz (Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Gullin)

Is it necessairy to be studied, to be able of life as an artist ?
