Sara Ödman Swedish


To create is an infinite part of me and has always been, I’ve been illustrating since I was a kid. I grew up on the south west coast in Sweden, in a family where art has always been a way to express yourself. Surrounded by the prairies and the ocean my entire childhood, nature is naturally my biggest source of inspiration. - Sara Ödman


Contemporary Swedish artist Sara Ödman is best known for her colourful and dynamic abstract paintings. Vibrant and lively, her paintings are inspired by the surrounding environment of her upbringing as she brings life to her artwork through bold and expressive brushstrokes.


Ödman explores various themes and draws inspiration from different sources in her art. Having spent her formative years surrounded by prairies and the ocean, nature profoundly influences the artist and plays a significant role in her practice, capturing the beauty and spirit of the wild world in her paintings. Distinguished by bold and vibrant hues to create dynamic and energetic compositions, the use of colour is a central element in her work, adding a sense of life and energy to her paintings. Memory and reflection are key components in her work as she draws upon her experiences and impressions of the natural environment, translating them into her paintings. Ödman's art explores themes of nature, colour, memory, reflection, and the inner world. Her vibrant and dynamic paintings capture the beauty of the natural world while also reflecting her personal experiences and emotions. 


Having exhibited in France and her native Sweden, she has a Master's degree in Art Direction from the renowned ESAG Penninghen, Paris, France.
