ABOUT AK VON MALMBORG

 

Painter living in Stockholm, Sweden. Studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins London and Pratt Institute New York.

Body of work  focuses foremost on large-scale oil paintings – feminist encompassing and self-disclosured but also includes performance, drawings, lectures, animations, scuplture and texts.  A recurring theme in her painting is pre puberty girls, empowered by their connection to animals and nature.

”Sveriges mest självutlämnande popartist, tecknare och konstnär.” Svd / ”Sweden’s most self-disclosured artist, popmusician and illustrator.” Svd (Svenska Dagbladet)

”Det är en egensinnig konst som har mycket gemensamt med dagens stora svenska namn. Men här finns ändå ett klart eget uttryck och en direkthet i uttalet som jag gillar och så en klart humoristisk touch.” Christer B Jarlås /”It’s an original artist who’s art has a lot in common with the big names of Swedish Contemporary artists of today. But there’s a clearly original expression along with a directness that I like, and of course a humorous touch.”  Christer B Jarlås

2004-2015 AK von Malmborg released 3 solo pop albums before she announced her death as a pop-musician in august 2015. During these years she also composed for ballet, TV, theatre and wrote the libretto for an electronic opera. She collaborated with contemporary Swedish pop-artists such as Ane Brun, Freddie Wadling, Olle Ljungström, Jenny Wilson, Jennie Abrahamsson and was awarded for her compositions by Swedish Arts Counil and STIM on no less than 5 (!) occasions during these years. The last concert ”AK von Malmborg is Dead” was performed in the Stockholm Music & Arts Festival in August 2015.
