My name is Ulf Andersson and I am a freelance artist resident in Malmö, Sweden.
On internet I have the username Artmagenta which I also use as my artist brand name.
Currently my artworks falls into three categories: Portraits, Cityscapes/Landscapes and Birds.
Painting a human portrait is a big and irresistable challenge. The face and its facial expressions are the window to the soul.
Painting the soul!
When you put animals and people in their own environment you get a lively picture that appeals to your fantasy. It’s a story told in one picture. This is why i like to do populated cityscapes and landscapes.
I paint birds from all over the world and have covered about 600 species by now. I’m fascinated by the shape and colors of birds. They make fantastic compositions and are beautiful to watch.
Most of my art I draw and paint on an iPad using an Apple Pencil but I also do watercolor and gouache artwork. I love digital tools. Digital tools can mimic almost any art technique. You can paint as with oils, acrylics, charcoal, pastels etc. And you can even mix the techniques in the same painting. And you can crate new, never before seen techniques for your artworks.
