I got so inspired by listening to Per Kolsgård do his magic at Galleri Kameleont today!
There was also an unveiling of a piece by an Ethiopian artist (I didn’t catch his name). After my visit to Kameleont, I continued to another local gallery but I get so disappointed in the way Swedish galleries play it ‘safe’ with abstract art that flirts with the most famous genres of the 20th century. Where are all the new artistic expressions? The underground artists? The alternative styles? I wish to see more of the art styles I belong to – outsider art, lowbrow and even pop-surrealism. These genres hardly exist here, especially not here in my city. Maybe I can change that. But how?
