Anders Sköld, Norrköping, Sweden
INTERVIEW WITH ANDERS SKÖLD
How old are you? How old is your inner child?
39 (2018). 6-8 years old. That was when the nightmares started to form and they still function as a source of inspiration for me.
Where do you live?
Artists who have influenced your art?
David Lynch and Cindy Sherman.
How would you describe your art?
That’s difficult. I try to do whatever comes to me. It could be anything from something fun to something born out of deep angst.
Are you self-taught or trained?
What emotion drives you while making art?
Fear, a sense of humor and tourettes.
If you were unable to make art, what would you do instead?
Play drums – and if I were unable to create I’d just be playing while somebody else would be in charge of the creative process.
Your biggest fear?
If you were forced to only use one color in your art, which color?
Who would play you in the bio-pic about your life?
Joaquin Phoenix. Because he is great with tics and obsessive-compulsive stuff.
Do you have any collection?
Yes, everything I see and hear.
