Hanna Sjöstrand


Hanna Sjöstrand is an artist born in Karlskoga, Sweden in 1978, now living in Oslo. She works within the field of painting with a complementary praxis in performance, theatre and film. Her work often combines an understanding of Chinese philosophy accumulated through years of internal martial art training with contemporary western discourse. This manifests in a painting praxis where traditional materials and expressions are brought into conceptual processes in order to investigate metaphysical framing of reality. 

She holds an MFA from Malmö Art Academy since 2009 and has just received a two year working grant from Konstnärsnämnden. She also received a one year working grant from Konstärsnämnden in 2014. In 2013 she received the Ellen Trotzig grant.
