Patternbank wanted to share our love for these stunning paintings by Markus Åkesson, with their dramatic scale and attention to detail in surface, pattern and texture; all things we love here at Patternbank, the almost photographic qualities seem to shift between reality and something imagined in a dream.

Markus Åkesson is a neofigurative painter on the international stage. His work has been shown in galleries and institutions in Paris, Berlin, Brussels, London, Vilnius and Stockholm. Living and working in Pukeberg in Nybro, Sweden, his home and studio are nestled in the woods where he is free to explore motives which relate man to nature and nature to the world unseen.

He is currently represented by Galerie Da-End in Paris and VIDA Museum outside of Borgholm on Öland, where his exhibition Insominia was on show.
