Today we’d like to introduce you to Linus Rosén.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
During my juvenile years, I faced many challenges socializing. Me and my brother, did not behave and social services took us, me and siblings in custody. Due to them believing that our parents could not fulfill the basic needs. It took some time, but after a while we got back to our parents. During college, I took drugs, and during the last year, I got a psychotic attack which lead to a crime, convicting me to Forensic Psychiatric Care and only then did I find my satisfying needs for art
Please tell us about your art. How? Why? What should we know about your artwork?
Having been on this mental facility for two years, I have learned that through my paintings I can get an idea of what I feel when the work is finished. If you can express your feelings then you get the opportunity to understand yourself. Which makes it possible for you to settle for yourself and let go of things.
Constantly laughing, and being in a manic state, I paint for a few hours without doing anything else, the ideas just keeps passing by. A sudden shock of mindfulness leading to dramatically even more manic power or a state completely out of energy.
The base question in my paintings is – God, why me? Why’d you create the world the way you did, why’d I have to suffer – and not someone else? Questions that sometimes turns into hate.
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
Sometime in the future I will make sure that my work will be available through exhibits and other platforms. But until then I will just keep posting my work at my Instagram and Facebook account.
