Ida Bentinger”At present I am focusing on the aspects of art that tell stories of the human nature and human history. Stories that refuse to give a straight answer, solution or ending. It sparks the imagination and understanding of human feelings. To tell stories like this, I choose not to restrict myself to a certain material or media. Instead I have deliberately used several different techniques and ventured into a range of different media. I am also interested in the magic of craft and my inherent need to use my creativity to define my culture.” MEMBERSHIP Kro – The Swedish artist’s national organization Bus- Royalties and copy rights, Sweden Svenska Konstnärer, Swedish Artist EDUCATION 2012-2015 Master in Fine Art ”Accademia di Belle Arti Bologna”, Italy
