I grew up visiting exhibitions with the type of contemporary art that is considered Real Art in Sweden. Abstract and naive stuff that focuses on obscure concepts over craftmanship. My reaction has been to become interested in classical figurative drawing and sculpting and learn the craft before I try to express concepts. That said, I still enjoy the interplay between the figurative and the abstract as a way to leave more building of meaning open to the viewer.
