Yellow and Black Photography Quote (1).p

“I've always had a close relationship with nature and I believe nature will always be a part of my artwork”

The artist Kristin Sarstedt was born in Gävle on the Swedish east coast in 1984.

In the spring of 2020, Covid-19 unexpectedly took the world by storm. One can almost say it appeared like a black swan, as shown in this piece.

She spent a significant part of her upbringing on the family residence Sares in Hälsingland and in the surrounding wilderness.

A rumoured bowl of bat soup with global impact inspired this piece, here merged with the Swedish forest to portray how deeply the effects from Covid-19 have permeated every section of our society.

Painting has been a great interest that has followed Kristin all her life.

Kristin’s artistry has always been an important contrast to her business mindset.

These animals and birds are often part of the theme in her paintings.

Close encounters with bears, foxes, and many types of wildlife, has inspired her artistic and creative side from an early age.

She has a M.Sc. in business and economics from Stockholm School of Economics.

As Covid-19 kept the world on pause, social distancing became the new normal. In this piece you will find classic Swedish birds like the great spotted woodpecker and the great tit, both with their face masks close by, when suddenly a bullfinch comes flying a bit too close surprising them.

In Kristin’s artwork, the Swedish nature is never too far away.

A piece inspired by the travel restrictions brought by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. Here you’ll see a pair of great crested grebes which are migratory birds. To the right a “flying prohibited” symbol etched in stone, indicating the Covid-19 effects are of a more permanent nature.

After additional studies in Vienna and at Harvard Business School she started an international career within marketing in 2010.

Describe your image

The fox is attracted by the mallard and has just started to launch an attack in order to get hold of it.

Kristin’s artistry has always been an important contrast to her business mindset.

The fox is focused and working to catch its next meal. Will it find the mouse under the snow?

Throughout her time living in Dublin and New York, the Swedish nature is never too far away in her artwork.
