Stockholm-based artist Fredrik Söderberg has spent the past years exploring art's connection to the occult world and to different esoteric traditions. Religion, religious experiences and meditation are important parts of his artistic work and his life. In many of his works "a cosmic abstract expression is paired with an accurate figurative and archetypal style, incorporating pure and intricate Mandela images inspired from Tibetan Buddhism and Native American nature religion and traditional crafts, all meticulously executed in watercolor, mineral colors and gold leaf."

This exhibition came down this past month in Stockholm, but we still had some great shots from Henrik Haven that he took of Michael Johansson's "Shades and Variables" at Galleri Andersson/Sandstrom. As the gallery notes, Johansson is "an installation artist obsessed with the investigation of spatial possibilities. Everyday objects are dismantled, re-organized and perfectly arranged into color-coordinated puzzles, filling out select voids of any dimension."

You've seen the work of Linnea Strid on our site before, her hyper realist style is well suited to her intimate subject matter. She is able to capture 'the figurative with a very heightened sensibility,' emphasizing the details and 'textures that make her work uncannily amplified.'

Yesterday we lamented that San Francisco's train stations were not nearly as cool as the one in Toledo, Naples. Now we're thinking Stockholm...

Thought your disco ball was cool? Artist Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen created a series of four mannequins decked out in shards of mirror for her exhibition Mobile Mirrors at Christian Larsen gallery in Stockholm, Sweden. "The mirror surfaces of the mannequins turn our gaze back onto ourselves, forcing us to become aware of our own bodies and consumption habits..."

When we featured Evah Fan in the magazine back in October 2010, she was living in Stockholm, Sweden, making intricate illustrations that, and as Kristin Farr wrote at the time, were "unintentionally puzzling." Now back living in Oakland, California, perhaps things will get more puzzling or clear as Fan is set to open What Have You at Park Life in San Francisco on August 31.

Following in the footsteps of the Hotel Chelsea in New York City (an establishment that no longer offers the same long-term residencies for creative types as it did in the past), the Clarion Hotel in Stockholm has been offering rooms in exchange for artwork.
