Sandra Hultsved is an artist born 1989 in the deep forests of Sweden. She started to create art to escape the dark reality – a world in decay, of loneliness and melancholy. Like a form of therapy, the artworks convey thoughts and subconscious feelings that she could not express in any other way. After years of battling with her own thoughts and depression, she captures the tragedy and melancholy in a beautiful way.
Sandra is self-taught mainly using oils, graphite pencils and ink. She is no stranger to portray themes such as mental health, fear, lust and death. With influences from both the old master’s classical techniques and the modern dark art, combined with her own imagination and experimentation with mediums.
Nature – particularly the forests of Värmland, where she grew up, is always a huge source of inspiration. The forest is her safe haven to which she flees to endure a little bit longer. The same goes for her art.
She has been exhibiting her work all over the world, co-founded Memento Tea Gallery in 2018 and at the same time took the big leap to focus on her art as main occupation.
