Everything we experience is a product of both mind and matter. So is the reality. Seemingly, reality is as much real as it is a figment of our imagination. It is scientifically proved that our brain is made up of billion cells, but how these cells work together still remains a neurobiological mystery. In his artworks, Carl Lagercrantz challenges the brain by taking the reality a step further by extending its visual details and objects and baring its optical illusions. The artworks merge with all the senses, combining those in a coherent whole.
Carl Magnus Lagercrantz was born in 1972 in the United States of America and now based in Stockholm. His art path began with his mother, who is an artist and also Carl’s first art teacher. Even though the main academic focus finally fell on political science, the painting has always been a strongly integrated part of Carl’s life. He has never stopped educating himself in art and attended painting classes of Martin J. Garhart and classes in sculpture of Barry Gunderson.
Through the years Carl has had several exhibitions, for example in Spain, Sweden and America. The artist’s works adorn a number of homes around the world.
