Kjell Strandqvist’s paintings often combine the definite with the indefinite and he likes to use a structure or a distinct simple form as a vehicle for colourful events. His colours have a close, imaginary relation which is sometimes easier to feel than see. His drawings have the same characteristics, they are bearers of obvious ambiguities.

Kjell Strandqvist is very verbal and expresses his views in a very straightforward way. He used to be a professor of drawing at the Royal Academy of Art in Stockholm between 1986 and 1996 and had a lot of influence on the development of teaching at this institution.
