The Artist

"A visual artist with a touch of quirkiness"

Konstnär Ylva Molitor-Gärdsell, Kivik på Österlen

Ylva, an international business woman who embraced her inner emotions and became an explorative painter. She mostly uses watercolour and gouache. Painting is her approach to life. Ylva is inspired by the fast technology driven cryptic world order, it's tales, and impact on our analog life. Layer upon layer that is not always obvious to the eye. A world where the hidden vault of information, the secret chamber of ideas, can release imagination and creativity.  The crypto universe where art can be more free.

 Ylva creates cryptic art paintings by using gouache painted layer by layer directly on black wind paperboard. Gouache is  a medium with the characteristics of both acrylic and watercolor, but is neither. It has it's own quality and it can be used to create vibrant, luminous works of art. It suits well for expressions with high energy. Wind paperboard, used as building material with the purpose to insulate, is an exciting material to paint on. It is black, a bit stiff and often large in scope. The combination of gouache and wind paperboard is the perfect medium for Crypto Art.


The beauty is in the eye of beholder.
