CajsaStina Åkerström exhibits her art at Spannstallet at Kronovall wine castle

30-31/3 at 11-17, Spannstallet, Kronovall wine castle

Singer and songwriter CajsaStina Åkerström has had art as an interest and love throughout her life. During the pandemic, she started painting seriously and made her debut as an artist in 2021. Now she is exhibiting her art for two days, 30-31 March, at Spannstallet at Kronovall Wine Castle during Konstrundan.

- "It is a great honour for me to exhibit at Spannstallet. I look forward to coming there and showing my art to visitors to Österlen. Everyone is warmly welcome, says CajsaStina Åkerström.

CajsaStina is self-taught, paints in oil pastel and uses her fingers as "brushes". She describes her painting as figurative, organic and intuitive. For her, the play of light in the subject is important.

- I work with oil pastels and coloured pencils on paper. I mix my own colours with a palette knife and then use the palette knife, my fingers, nails and pencils as "brushes" when I paint. I also spend a lot of time and focus on finding motifs where light, perspective and colours interact in an optimal way for me. I find the motifs in the surroundings when I walk and take photographs. Then I paint freehand after the photograph," says CajsaStina.

CajsaStina says that intuition is an important part of her creative process: "It's definitely related to making music. I also listen to a lot of music when I paint. I often have old heroes like Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell in my headphones. My interest in painting comes from my mum," says CajsaStina.
