JENS MALMGREN I create, that is my hobby.


Fruits are really handy still-life material. Here I grabbed what the fruit basket could provide at that moment. On the left side you see a pear. Next to the pear a Clementine you see an apple. On the right side you see a banana. In the pear I painted reflection of the Clementine and the apple. Also on the table under each fruit I painted the reflection of each fruit.

I find apples challenging to paint, especially apples with patterns and various colors. They have a very delicate pattern in the skin indicating the form of the apple and also the shadows indicate the form. Although happy with the painting I concluded that I would try paint more apples in the future.

I was born 1967 in Stockholm, Sweden. I grew up in the small village Vågdalen in north Sweden. 1989 I moved to Umeå to study Computer Science at University of Umeå. 1995 I moved to the Netherlands where I live in Almere not far from Amsterdam.

Here on this site I let you see my creations.
