Turning to lonely work in my studio by Echi Aaberg

Turning to lonely work in my studio by artist Echi Aaberg. That was the start of me as an artist…


Playground I by Echi Aaberg

When I was 8, a long time ago, I painted a circus tent in many, many colours and my teacher gave me the highest grade. I was very proud and happy for that – but everything has a backside, of course. My classmates were not so happy and picked on me for that.

Took me down quite a bit and I did not gave the drawing so much attention after that. But always in my mind I knew that I had that talent in me. Sadly it took some time before I really made something of my talent. Went to artschool – the oldest in the class for three years. A restart that has brought happiness as well as sadness in my life. It is one thing to have talent and another thing to get an exhibition.

As a start I didsend my works to juried exhibitions all over Europe and was accepted. My first was LAC in Luxembourg, prints – 4 linocuts in black on Chinese rize paper. Exiting is the word to use, they were all sold there. The same four linocats were also accepted in Giza, Egypt.

That was the start of me as an artist. Now I am working with acrylic because it suits my temper – fast colours without the smell.

Being artist is a rather lonely existence – but I like that. Just me and my paintings. Advise from others is not an option. I see my motive, my colours different than the spectators. They may interpret the picture in front of them with reference to their experience in life, their background and ideas.

I appreciate Facebook for the possibility to “meet” fantastic creative peoples and to see great paintings, photos and read interesting articles about art and culture.etc. Become inspired – simply just that to keep working.

To be appreciated warms up that heart – in a otherwise cold climate. .
