Klara Lindahl

Who are you and what do you do?

I’m Klara Lindahl, living and studying in Malmö. I do illustrations and grow things in my allotment. 

Who/what inspires you? 

I get inspired when I’m around smart people, most women for example. Also I get super excited whenever I see an abandoned house in the woods. I just want to move in immediately and it makes me think I can do anything.

What themes do you pursue?

Feminism and portraits. 

Why art? 

Doing illustrations is what I always fall back into doing. There’s always more to be done. It’s also where I feel encouraged and excited, and sometimes lost and bored. It’s a perfect balance of ups and downs.

Name some artists you would like to be compared to. 

Being compared to other artists is often a very flattering but also confusing thing. I try to not to compare so much, and more just being awed by amazing artists. Some great ones are Laura Carlin, Karin Hagen, Björn Rune Lie, and Riikka Laakso.
