The first time I had the privilege of visiting one of Yoko Ono's exhibitions, was at Wanås (Sweden) during the summer of 2011. I became touched by her way of expressing herself in both writing and art. When I then several months later visited Yoko Ono's website, the idea of the site's key words Imagine Peace took form and to convey that message on canvas. The result was the painting Peace, Yoko Ono.
The second painting in the series is now completed and goes by the name Imagine, John Lennon.
The message Imagine Peace really fit in to these both people and should be followed by all of us!
This both paintings can be seen at the exhibition in Copenhagen at custom house between August 25 to September 23. www.customartgallery.dk/

Tommy Lennartsson's beautiful pop art-inspired portraiture captures the viewers' imagination by featuring a range of well-known figures in abstract or unconventional backdrops. His works have a dreamlike quality, compounded by the provocative themes and an array of colour.
Using acrylic and mixed media on canvas, Lennartsson transforms places and nature into unexpected vivid tableaux, that transfix you and transport you to the realms of your imagination. His palette favours deep crimson red and earth tones paired with more subtle, ethereal tones that border surrealism and symbolism combined. The overall effect is a refreshing view of the world through the eyes of the artist. He takes you on a journey, where the destination is unknown and the voyage is enthralling and unexpected.
Tommy Lennartsson works and lives in Sweden.
