The girlfriends in close conversation, the cat seeks attention. The couple in the foreground, aiming for the next stop. A day in Paris what can you expect.

LIFE-AFFIRMING NAIVISM

PIERRE'S COLORFUL FIGURES SPREAD JOY

Pierre's motifs convey a warm feeling and spread joy to the viewer. Growing up, Pierre took strong impressions from grandfather Rune, his artist friends, and their lives. This is reflected in the color palette, the figures and the environments that brings to mind the fifties.

IMPRESSIVE RICHNESS OF DETAILS

LAYERS UPON LAYERS BRINGS OUT THE NAIVE CHARM

Pierre's densely painted motifs are filled with well-crafted details that invite the viewer to explore his stories. Often each artwork takes months and many coats of oil before Pierre is satisfied. Naivists are not always known for technically detailed and well-worked motifs, but Pierre Rådsten is an exception.

IDYLLIC SCENES BUSTLING WITH LIFE

DETAILED FRENCH RESTAURANT ENVIRONMENTS

In Pierre's detailed motifs, we encounter strong influences from the naïve artists of the early 20th century. His motifs are full of idyllic environments, businesses, and crowds of people. In the motifs, a recurring theme is restaurants and cafes with chefs and waiters as his father was head chef.

"I always have paper and pencil with me. If I find a nice environment, I sketch the artwork directly on the spot. Colors, shapes and details are added and rearranged so that they fit my inner image."
- Pierre

IN HIS GRANDFATHER'S FOOTSTEPS

LIFELONG INTEREST IN COLOR

Pierre Rådsten (b. 1982) has always been interested in color and a painting kit he got as a gift at the age of five became the starting point for creation. Pierre is self-taught and has learned a lot from his grandfather Rune Rådsten, an artist who in his time spent a lot of time with renowned artists such as Sven X:et Erixson and Otte Sköld.

TECHNIQUE AND HUMILITY

FOR PIERRE, NAIVISM IS PAINTING FROM THE HEART

The old men in Pierre's paintings have been with him since childhood. From the beginning he tried to make them realistic with neat shapes but that didn't give Pierre anything. He was influenced by his grandfather's older artist friends and created his own visual language that stuck.

“You have to paint from the heart!” - Pierre.
