A stockholm girl, Linnea Strid has been painting since she could hold a pencil in her hand. The subjects in her impressive photorealistic oil paintings are typically submerged in or dripping with water.
Linnea first found her talent for painting water in 2007 by experimenting with how she would look underwater, as if she had drowned. She fell in love with the concept and it has remained a primary focus of her work.
”Most of my pieces are like snap shots of my (or someone else’s) every day life, and most likely there’s a small twist added to it, in the painting itself or in the title. Like some sort of underlying irony, a more serious or political touch, contradictory feelings, or something else. ” (via My Modern Met)
