Visual art
JAN-THOMAS ÖLUND
In my painting, I have an organic minimalist approach to my work. Minimalism is an art style that focuses on simplicity. I often use prepared paper or canvas I paint in layers upon layers or thickly in earthy tones. I am looking for form and balance. It is a painting that tries to reduce and simplify the visual elements. Often the titles come spontaneously or are personal notes.
