ABOUT EINAR

I have always dabbled in the arts in one way or another; the latest incarnation being a mental refuge from the turmoils of our times.

My work combines graphic imagery
along with the addition of fibre and other craft embellishments.

I love colour and ornamentation;
being especially inspired by the fluoro and neon tones of my childhood in the 80s and 90s.

With this, I aim to present beauty and inspire optimism for a more positive world;
where man and nature can co-exist in a more mutually beneficial capacity.

The addition of craft initially pays homage to the masterful, yet humble, practical skills of my family.

I’m also increasingly drawn to the tangible nature of the handmade, whilst the world has been fighting an “invisible” enemy, and the art world is being drawn towards the virtual.
