Niklas AskerNiklas Asker
Niklas Asker was born 1979 in Nordingrå, Sweden.
He has studied art at Konstskolan Kuben and Örebro Konstskola in Örebro where he graduated in 2001. After that he studied at Malmö Comics Art School and worked in the international comics industry for 9 years. In that time his own graphic novel Second Thoughts has been published in 6 different languages and he has done work for a number of different publishers, including Random House Books in New York. 

In 2009 he started painting, teaching himself how to work with oil, and after being accepted into the Liljevalchs Spring Salon in 2011 and 2012 he started exhibiting regularly in Sweden and Abroad.

Artist Statement

Niklas considers the traditional, time consuming painting techniques he uses as a form of ritual. It’s a conversation with history but also a tool for carefully digging into the subconscious. Painting as a kind of excavation. His focus during the last few years has been studying certain abstract and figurative expressions from art history and using it in his work, examining how elements from the past are read today and how they can be used to forge new visual expressions in contemporary painting.
