Kenneth Engblom,

is a painter whose art is mostly inspired by old houses, churches and towers which he has spotted during his travels in Italy, Spain, Estonia, China etc.  He prefers to show his art in most unexpected places like in the catacombs of the Crypt Gallery in London, the old cable factory in Helsinki, the antique furnace in Deruta, the Glyptotheque in Tartu, the medieval castle tower in Paide, the Forsby-Köping limestone cableway or the open air museum of Mannaminne.

Kenneth Engblom is a master of capturing the soul of houses, especially the old and ramshackle ones which he finds in Estonia but even in the North of Sweden and Sicily. This is a subject that seems to kick off his imagination the most and he returns to it constantly.

Selfportraits

Though ruthless when it comes to portraying himself, one can detect lots of self-mockery, gentleness and harmony behind  the grotesque figure of the artist in the paintings.

China

Travels have been a big source of inspiration for the artist. When he visited China he was dazzled by the colours and shapes around him. The temples of the Forbidden City in Beijing were a constant theme after that.
