Ever since Mattias Frisk finished his studies in art and art history he has made his living as an artist and illustrator. His paintings do often rely on a conceptual fundament that upholds a dark fairytale world which blends with contemporary events. As an illustrator he has foremost made album covers and has worked with a number of international clients. Frisk work in a lot of different techniques and materials: from traditional oil on canvas, gouache, pen on paper, collage and photos to digital media.
Rather than seeing a conflict in working digitally on an album cover in the morning and then switching to oil on canvas for a fine art painting in the afternoon, he tries to learn from the different approaches and see if there is something in one technique or expression that can be used in another.
