Eitil Thorén Due grew up in Stockholm in a family of artists. His project "Peytil" comes from his childhood nickname. He has a minimalist approach to art and design and loves the spontaneous expression of a simple black line.
How did you get into art?
I grew up in a family of artists, my mother is a sculptor and my father is a painter. So I was hooked on it early.
How would you describe your style? What makes your work special?
My style is minimalistic. I’m trying to make it simple and clean. I combine both digital tools and traditional painting.
How do you go about developing your work?
I usually sketch an idea first, before I paint it big. Mostly I paint with watercolors and ink. I photograph the painting along the way and if I need to, I take it in to the computer where I can combine multiple versions of a painting.
Who or what influences you?
I’m influenced by everything. Music, movies, culture, nature, space.
Make us curious. What is planned next?
I have recently started to do sculptures from clay, I’m going to do more of that.
