The previews in Sweden

Each preview of the international memorial exhibition, "Bengt Lindström, the Master of Ancient Nordic Mythology," is unique in itself, none like the other. In 2017 and 2018, before it was time for the entire exhibition to continue to the world's art metropolises, we exhibited selected artworks from the collection at a few locations in Sweden.

I'm very pleased with the first preview in Storsjö kapell, the artist's birthplace. What an experience it has been! Great to meet so many Bengt Lindström art lovers.

It has been a great experience to show Bengt Lindström for the Mora audience. In Mora we were able to display 47 large art pieces by Bengt Lindström. All the paintings made a fantastic impact when displayed side by side.

The first preview was in Storsjö kapell and the second in Mora.

THE ARTIST

BENGT LINDSTRÖM

Bengt Lindström used dramatic colors in his paintings. Colors and shapes work together to reproduce powerful expressions. Bengt used to say, "The colors in my paintings are those that are found at home in Norrland when the snow is gone. Blue is the mountains, red is the autumn landscape, green and yellow are the spring and summer.

Bengt Lindström was born on September 3, 1925 in the small mountain village of Storsjö kapell, in Härjedalen, Norrland, Sweden. He grew up in this mythical wilderness with mountains, lakes, forests and animals. The local lumberjacks and the Sámi people told him many stories revealing the legends and mysteries of the Great North. His father's close friend, Kråik, chieftain of the nearby Sámi village, was also Bengt's godfather. Just after Bengt was born, Kråik performed the ceremony, "Baptism of the earth," during which Bengt was moved trough the roots of a dead tree to ensure that the spirits would protect him from the perils of life. 

 

Bengt Lindström

Like all other great artists, Bengt Lindström was very productive and arranged annual exhibitions in many places around the world. His use of strong colors and rapid, powerful brushstrokes prompted the Italians to call him The North Wind, “Vento del Nord”.
