Oil on hardboard – 1967

Stig Fredriksson, an artist from Porvoo, was known for using round shapes in his paintings. He therefore earned himself a nickname “Stig of the Circles”.

Stig Fredriksson adopted the abstract expression at an early stage and was not afraid to use colours. He discovered his colourful expression already in the 1940’s in the Free Art School.

Among the other participants in the course was e.g. Tove Jansson. The Nordic artist cooperation was of special importance to him.
