”My paintings reflects moments of meetings with the abstract and concrete present as sometimes strikes me with great power and sometimes just touch my consciousness.”
Echi Åberg

Born in Malmberget, in the north of Sweden and moved south during the years and ended up 1977 in the
southeast of Sweden – Kivik where I now live and work.
I think I have to blame my dear cousin, composer Bo Nilsson for my interest in painting – he did
paint the walls in his room in white, with sheets music in black – never forget that, I was 9 at the time.
I just love abstract and abstract figurative, what you see in the abstract is based on your own experiences
trough life. All is in the eyes of the beholder – perfect I think.
Ideas for my motives I take from things around me, travels, people I meet, things I read or something I
see in the corner of the eye. Make notes, take photos of a sidewalk, a stone, a piece of paper on the
pavement, all impressions together in front of the empty canvas
My work is not planned in detail – it will always be in the moment, in front of the white surface –
the idea in my mind is the base and the motive appear during the work. I work fast therefore acrylic suits
me temper perfect. In some projects I also work with metal, wood, ceramic and textile.
