Gunnar Tryggmo – Swedish artist
Born 1969 in Växjö, Sweden. Raised in Sjöabro, a scenic spot deep in the middle of the forest in Småland, which is a province in southern Sweden. The forest’s diversity of animals and birds caught my interest early on and became a natural source of inspiration. I shared this artistic interest with my uncle, who encouraged me from a young age, and it was he who took me to my first show.
After high school I moved to Helsingborg, a city in southern Sweden which faces Denmark, in order to study painting and drawing at Sundsgårdens college.
I continue to be inspired by nature and in particular by animals and birds in their natural environment, such as the Swedish landscape which ranges from the coastline to the heavily forested interior.
The artwork is characterized to a large part of my natural interest. The values, the mood and the moment are the most important things in my paintings. The techniques I practice are Watercolor, oil and drawing. I work both in the studio and plein air
