Michael Qvarsebo (b.1945)

Michael Qvarsebo currently works from his studio in Bergsgård where he finds solace from the hurly-burly of modern life. His talent for painting emerged at the age of 16 following a difficult period of his childhood. In an interview with Swedish newspaper, Hallandsposten, he recalls: “When all of my peers were out partying, I stood by the easel instead.”

To this day, his art remains his escape and he’s particularly well known for his surrealist depictions of colourful felines. Cats are close to his heart and his works are always in high demand.
