Guided tour at Umeå konsthall

Guided tour at Umeå konsthall

Fredrik Lindqvist’s images are a combination of the graphic technique woodcuts and textiles. He depicts the world of today in the form of animals, fashion, pop culture, and urban worlds. A wild mix, where the humorous and the serious are in sharp contrast to each other. Welcome to a short introduction of the exhibition “The Story Never Ends”!

“I like the direct and exact approach of a woodcut. Printing the aggressive woodcut on soft, monochrome and patterned fabrics, creates what I feel is a pleasant contrast.”
– Fredrik Lindqvist
