Paula Rindborg is a visual artist and designer born in Rio de Janeiro 1974. Since her youth she has been involved in different forms of artistic expression, which would later come to lead to her studies in art, design, literature, among others, in a number of universities, institutions and ateliers in Brazil, Sweden, Ecuador and France. In the past 22 years, she has dedicated herself to producing, developing and exhibiting her work in various places. Currently, her atelier is located in Stockholm, where she works with both art and design. She is a member of a number of artists’ organisation, such as: KRO (The National Organisation of Swedish Artists), SINAP-ESP (The Union of Brazilian Artists) and Svenska Konstnärsförbundet (Swedish Artist Association).


Words from the artist about her work:

"In my artwork, I try to find the balance between colours, textures, and impatient movements, which perhaps reflects, in a somewhat subjective manner, a piece of me. In my non abstract pieces, the preoccupation with the object becomes almost secondary. Not only is the piece as a whole, vital to me, but every individual smaller entity and its context in the grand scheme of the piece as well. My passion for the details of my work and the possibilities for the interpretations between “the lines” of the matter, is what I strive to have in the essence of my works. Thus, I am always in search of different mediums for creation, without ever losing what I believe to be my artistic identity."
