Per Elof Nilsson Ricklund is a emerging young artist who focuses on humanity. He has been living and working in Florence, Italy for close to a decade. At the age of twenty one, Per Elof became the Director of Anatomy at the Florence Academy of Art, where he has since taught drawing, painting and sculpture.
Today, Per Elof’s paintings explore the dialogue between his Sami heritage, history, and cultures. He draws knowledge and inspiration from both archeaological and classical art. Per Elof spends his time working between wilderness and civilization, the north of Sweden and the living museums of the world. Through this, he has internalized a broad spectrum of art as it has been translated and conveyed throughout history.
