THE INK TRAIL
Born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden, Andreas has been drawing for as long as he can remember. After graduating from BASIS School of Art in Stockholm in 2011, he went on to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Hong Kong, and the U.S. (Savannah and Atlanta, GA). Following his graduation in 2015, Andreas worked as an assistant to Swedish sculptor Anders Krisár in Manhattan, New York, before training as a Gallery Associate at MoMA. Today, Andreas spends his time working as a freelance illustrator in Hong Kong, creating images for editorial, commercial, private, and educational clients.
Working with a collection of fine-liner ink pens, Andreas always aims to capture the ambience of any specific site depicted. Though sometimes confined to photographic reference, most of his drawings are made on-site, which requires several hours spent in one spot. This has led to many interesting interactions and stories that are frequently shared on his social media, along with time lapse captures of his artistic process.
