David Sandum

David Sandum was born 1971 in Gothenburg Sweden. Today he resides in Moss Norway and has a studio at Gamle Pikeskolen (since 2003), where he also teaches several private students.

David is self-taught, though he studied art history at the University of Utah. He see’s himself mainly as a colorist – and expressionist. Feelings, energy, and emotions are very much key to his work. The people he paints are never real portraits, “but inner portraits.” Scandinavian influences are Munch, Karsten, Bleken, Heramb, and Sparre. Other influences are The German Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) movement (1911-1914) spearheaded by Kandinsky, and continental masters such as Gauguin, Van Gogh, Bonnard and Matisse.
