is a Swedish aspiring painter born in 1999. She has always used different
visual mediums as a way to express herself but fell in love with painting
during her year at Konstskolan Basis, a preparatory art school in Stockholm, Södermalm.
The following year she studied graphic design and illustration at
Nyckelviksskolan, an established art school located in the heart of Lidingö
Stockholm, but even in the more design heavy projects she always came back to
painting as a technique. An example of this is the suite Beneath the surface,
twelve digital paintings all part of a visual story and created at
Nyckelviksskolan during autumn 2020 in the midst of the second wave of the
pandemic. A visual representation of floating through life and searching for a
more tangible reality, one that does not seem to exist in the physical world.
This search for a different version of the world as well as herself is a common
theme in all the paintings in the exhibition. If that version can be found on the
other side of a door or a leaf tunnel is a question yet to be answered, but
Ylva is only in the beginning of her journey as a painter and is looking
forward to seeing were the road takes her next, be it new projects or higher
