ABOUT ART MONSTERS OF SWEDEN

 

 

.

A MOVEMENT FOR  ‘NEW CONTEMPORARY ART’ IN SWEDEN

.

ART MONSTERS OF SWEDEN is a newly formed art movement for Swedish new contemporary art genres, such as; lowbrow, popsurrealism, suggestivism & dark art (The ART MONSTERS-movement). 

The movement was born due to a collective frustration (in the alternative Swedish art community) of not having a public arena in Sweden for new contemporary art genres like; lowbrow, popsurrealism, steampunk, goth, horror and burlesque art.

This website is a unique platform for alternative Swedish artists who are looking for that special feeling of finding a “home” in the art community.  It is a home to the Swedish lowbrow & dark art community. ♥

You can also follow us on social media: @artmonstersofsweden and #artmonstersofsweden.

LOWBROW, POP SURREALISM & DARK ART IN SWEDEN

.

Many Swedes are unfamiliar with terms like ‘lowbrow’ and ‘dark art’ and this is understandable. Even though lowbrow art is established on the American art scene – and is trending in many parts of Europe, Sweden has yet to acknowledge the genre. To be able to build their careers, many Swedish lowbrow artists have turned to the international art scene. 

ART MONSTERS OF SWEDEN has therefore initiated a new art movement for new contemporary art in Sweden, such as Swedish lowbrow/pop-surrealism art (and darker sub-genres).
