Swedish artist Ekta reconsiders simple geometric shapes

Ekta4

Ekta, real name Daniel Gotesson, is a 38-year-old artist who currently lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden. Daniel’s creative background is rooted in skateboarding and graffiti, scenes which still inspire his work. “I got very important sources of inspiration in those years and it still has an affect on what I do,” Daniel says. “I’m not from a very cultural family or environment but I think in a way that was an advantage, I had to find my own.”

Daniel’s boldly geometric work vibrates with the artist’s hand. “The majority of my work is personal and with no brief, that’s the absolute best circumstances for me to work under,” he says. “That’s entirely my own thing and I don’t have to worry too much about what other people think about it and I can take that in any direction I want.”

That no-holds-barred sense of freedom shows in Daniel’s confident work across different mediums, on canvas or across entire walls, with fabric flags or torn coloured paper. “I try to work in a wide range of mediums and I don’t want to limit myself to just painting,” he says. “My process is about limitations, order, balance and self-sabotage. I see my work as placing things – shapes, colours etc. – in an order that feels right but once that is achieved I often get bored and feel a strong urge to destroy it. If I go out to paint a wall, I often restrict myself to few colours and mediums. With limitations I don’t have to stop to make decisions during process and that helps me keep a better rhythm and flow.”

Gallery-of-everything_ion-barladeanu_barl-063 Work / Art 71-year-old, formerly homeless Romanian collage artist Ion Bârlādeanu opens first UK show

Romanian collage artist Ion Bârlādeanu, now 71, was made homeless following the 1989 revolution in his home country. He lived for almost 20 years in the rubbish tip under a block of flats, making collage artworks from magazines and other trash he found, satirising both the Communist former nation and the capitalist, celebrity culture he once admired. Ranging from the lighthearted to the darkly comical, and dangerously risky amid the tumultuous political era, the works were a relief for the artist and a candid social commentary.

Artist Crys Yin transitioned into painting full time around three years ago. California-born, New York-based Crys describes her style as “odd, absurd and physical”, with comical elements “even when the overall mood is meant to be somber or detached”. For the artist, the more nonsensical the better and she pulls from real-life experiences, from childhood memories to everyday occurrences, to inspire her simple paintings. “For instance, one of my paintings is based on a reoccurring dream I had for years and years, and another is something I saw walking home the other day,” explains Crys.

List Work / Art Artist Eva Papamargariti takes us inside her digital dreamscapes

We came across artist and designer Eva Papamargariti’s work in Margot Bowman’s film Come Inside It’s Amazing, where her glistening, dreamy digiscapes point the way to a mesmerising alternate universe packed with playfulness. Her practise built around time-based media such as video, digital installations and gifs meditating on themes of landscapes and environment, and the future: work so complex that engaging with it is like considering the edges of infinity.

LA’s art scene is often considered splintered, not least because of the city’s sprawling topography. Inglewood, situated in the city’s south west in the industrial South Bay area might be better known for the Los Angeles Stadium under construction at Hollywood Park and cult bakery Randy’s Donuts than its creative residents, but look a little closer and it’s not hard to miss painter Alex Becerra.
