URBAN LARSSON

URBAN LARSSON
Bildkonstnär. Född i Stockholm 23 november 1966. Han bor och arbetar sedan mitten på 1990 talet i Amsterdam. Efter studier i konsthistoria och arkitektur på Stockholms Universitet samt kungliga Tekniska Högskolan, flyttade han till Florens för att utbilda sig vid Studio Cecil&Graves den enda ateljén som då undervisade i traditionellt realistiskt måleri. I över tre år utbildade han sig i teckning och målning o ch lärde sig språket från den äldre traditionens måleri.
" Han utgår från verkligheten och hans målningar innehåller alla klassiska övningar som stilleben pleinair måleri och porträtt.
Han målar framstående män och kvinnor, porträttlika med en själslig glimt. Urban Larsson har fått många prestigefulla porträttuppdrag. 2013 fick han beställningen att måla H. M. Drottning Silvia. 2017 i februari avtäcktes porträtten av H.M. Kung Wilhelm Alexander och H.M.Drottning Maxima av Nederländerna".
"En konstnär måste göra många viktiga val –
såsom utbildning, identitet och material." Urban Larsson
