Christin Björk is a Swedish artist with a traditional painting background and an imagination driven by classical beauty. She has created her own fantasy world that is grounded in a place where animals have a natural place in our interpersonal relationships.
The underlying thread that connects all the characters is that they see themselves with humour and confidence. This comes from the life choices we all make day by day that shape who we are and how we live our lives. Christin's love for the traditional craft of painting together with her love of animals, human behaviour and fairy tales has formed a unique way of creating a link between the art styles of the subculture and the finer world of classical art.
Using oil and acrylic paint and simple textures on linen, she has created portraits from an alternate universe that seemingly may or may not exist. Her work is about identity and memory, with a hidden interpretation on human behaviour and how one treats oneself and others.
