NUG works with painting as his primary medium. NUG’s canvasses bear witness to his established background in graffiti culture. Utilizing tools and techniques generally reserved for graffiti artists he creates sprawling pieces that somehow manage to appear to be in constant motion while still projecting an air of composed stillness. He distils his own aesthetic down to its very core. The careful consideration behind every move reveals a desire to eliminate any possible visual waste leaving nothing but the essence of the painting.
NUG, or Magnus Gustafsson, is a Swedish artist. He lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. He works primarily with painting, other mediums of choice include video and audio. He received his MFA from Konstfack University College of Art and Design in 2008.
