Anders Sunna

The works of Anders Sunna articulate a sense of picturesque brutality. With a painterliness verging on pure fury, he depicts an equally merciless reality in heavy, opaque fields of color contrasted against thinly applied layers of paint, running spray paint, collage and found materials. Sunna renders an explosive political content colored by personal experiences. Authoritarian, threatening and heavily symbol laden architecture cuts through landscapes where traces of conflict are further enhanced by mounds of skulls and barbed wire.

Anders Sunna studied at Konstfack – University of Arts, Craft and Design (2006 – 2009) and at Umeå Art School (2004 – 2006). Sunna has recently participated in The Moderna Exhibition, Moderna Museet, 2018; Varje löv är ett öga, Göteborgs Konsthall, 2019 – 2020 and in The trees, light green: Landscape painting – past and present, Bonniers Konsthall, 2020. His work is represented in the collection of Moderna Museet among other public collections.
