– Bengt Lindstrom might be one of the great painters of the twentieth century. His work is as willful as it is brilliant and serves as a source of deep inspiration to many.
Bengt's work struck me for the first time when I was on a trip to a stainless steel mill in northern Sweden. There, on a cold and dark winter evening, I saw one of the paintings. It was an overwhelming experience, like being in another world. Its brilliance, brutal colors, mystic layers and spiritual aura changed my view of art and the way art should be experienced.
It also made me an immediate collector.
