Bengt Lindström (1925-2008) is one of our most famous visual artists who had a big impact with his pasty abstract spontaneity painting with strong colors and distorted faces. Lindström trained at Konstfack and studied with Isaac Grünewald and Otte Sköld. He studied in both Copenhagen and Chicago and lived for several years in Paris where he was accepted at both André Lhote and Fernand Léger's painting schools. Through his interest in the inherent power of colors, he came into contact with the Cobra group in France during the 1950s. Lindström made several monumental paintings and one of his single largest works is the large silo painting in Örebro. He is represented at the National Museum in Stockholm, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm and the Gothenburg Art Museum.
