Gustav Almestål

Gustav Almestål’s imagery is instantly recognizable due to his innovative and personal approach to colour, lighting and composition. His images are often infused with a surreal sense of humour, as well as a keen sense for details, which becomes especially noticeable in his subtle use of art historical references.

A recurring theme is his interest in philosophy and aesthetics, particularly concerning life, death and decay – classic subjects in the historical tradition of still life – bringing a multi-dimensional quality to his images.
