DIVE Madhouse is a Paris-born, Sweden-based CONTEMPORARY ABSTRACT artist. With his very colourful original works, spanning over the abstract spectra from dreamy in form to playful in figure - he has over the passed couple of years attracted an increasing international audience with exhibitions in e.g. New York, London, Venice and China.
DIVE is the pseudonym, under which the founder, Fredrik Sologub lets his very raw, naked and intense expression pass in color, on canvas. Using tools such as raw brushes, painting knives, spray cans and his bare hands - in his improvisational approach towards the bare canvas. Mediums, being merely a tool for the channeled emotion, vary between acrylics, oils, spray paint, oil pastels and water. Whatever suits the desired effect and technique of the moment.
DIVE Madhouse’s main official channel @divemadhouse on Instagram, is with its +70 000 followers - today one of the largest male artist accounts in Scandinavia. Most recent exhibitions have been held in New York, Venice, China (3 cities), Sweden (Gothenburg) and London. For the month of June, DIVE has been working with and showing his original works with the NYA Gallery in TriBeCa, New York. Currently he is showing at his 3rd exhibition in New York with Van Der Plas Gallery on 156 Orchard Street as well as working intensively towards his upcoming solo exhibition at The Gallery Gothia Towers in Gothenburg, Sweden. A show which opens doors on August 15th.
