About

Artwork size: 73x60 cm. Frame size: 85,5x73 cm. Signed by the artist. Free shipment worldwide. Bengt Lindström was a big man from the central parts of the Norrland province, born in Storsjö Kapell on 3 September 1925. He resided in Paris since 1948, but during the summer months, he stayed on the coast of Norrland. From the age of fifteen, he continuously, but with indefatigable strength, devoted himself to painting in a personal manner, mostly large, colourful paintings. After his graduation at academic upper secondary school, he studied at various art schools in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Chicago, and Paris. His mentors were art-world celebrities like Isaac Grünewald in Stockholm, and André Lhote and Fernand Léger in Paris. When Bengt Lindström moved to Paris, his art was to be influenced and affected by the COBRA group. COBRA was founded in 1948 by artists like Asger Jorn, Corneille and Karel Appel. The group worked with colour as a means of expression of its own, quite regardless of previous conventions, but with feeling and intuition as important ingredients. This was also to become Bengt Lindström’s way of expressing himself in his painting. His motives come exclusively from the realms of man and of animals. Howling, growling, screaming and laughing beings cover the surface. His painting is driven by a primitive force, a furious energy, which seems to originate from the dawn of time. He also found inspiration in Nordic mythology, the Viking Age, and in folk art from various countries and epochs. As an exiled Norrlander, Bengt Lindström strictly adhered to certain Norrland qualities. The titles he gave to his paintings often point to Norrland and Nordic sources of inspiration. Bengt Lindström became successful in the art world and has held exhibitions at many well-known and well-reputed art galleries and museums around the world. As ”Le Grand Viking du Nord”, and in company with artist like Öyvind Fahlström, Max Walter Svanberg, Bengt Olsson, and Erik Dietman, he has become one of Sweden’s internationally most renowned painters.
