Ida Ekblad

Ida Ekblad

Ida Ekblad (b. 1980, Oslo, Norway) lives and works in Oslo, Norway. Using painting and sculpture interchangeably, she transforms motifs from a wide variety of art historical references to Norwegian fairy tales and craft techniques but also street art, cartoons and reminiscences of her own childhood.

Ekblads works have a unique vibrancy to them. Her expressive paintings pair painterly gravitas with a mischievous humour and the use of puff-paint on canvas solidify her sense of playfulness and fearless appropriation. A similar mind can be found in her sculptures, poetically assembled from found waste or eclectically summoned from traditional materials as marble or bronze.

Ekblad has had solo exhibitions at Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, Kunstverein Braunschweig, Braunschweig, Museo Tamayo, Mexico, and Kunsthalle Zürich, Zurich, amongst others. She has an upcoming solo exhibition at Astrup Fearnley museum, Oslo.
